Church To Hold Spaghetti Dinner

Volunteers from St. James Parish on Allen Street in Jamestown are gearing up for the 71st annual St. Joseph’s table and spaghetti dinner. The dinner will be held on Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The dinners include a generous portion of spaghetti, meatballs, salad and bread. Adult dinners are $8 and child portions are $6. There is a bake sale with several kinds of Italian cookies, cannoli and homemade bread. Though the volunteers making the sauce, baking cookies, cannoli and bread may change every 10 years or so, the quality of food and the excellence in taste does not change. This event brings families together to share a meal and talk of old times. It’s more than a fundraiser for the Church, it’s a community coming together to eat and fellowship. The money raised by this event is always used to help a needy organization within the community.
