We will have spaghetti with a variety of sauces and toppings. Also garlic bread, salad and a variety of desserts. Please join us! If you can help: We need people to agree to make homemade spaghetti sauce/toppings for this event. From each of these volunteers we will need 3-5 quarts, delivered hot to the church the morning of Nov. 16. We would really like a variety of sauces and toppings.
