Dinner for a great cause

G et a warm fuzzy feeling from providing a warm fuzzy feeling.

The Granville Rotary Club has a holiday tradition of working to make sure area children who need warm winter clothing the most have it; it’s called the annual Spirit of Christmas spaghetti dinner and it happens at Bernardo’s on Monday, Dec. 10.

The spaghetti dinner fundraiser begins at 5 p.m. on Monday, with additional seating times of 6:15 and 7:15 p.m.

The menu features spaghetti with sauce, garlic bread and salad to eat in or take out.

Takeout meals are $6, with eat-in service available for $5. Rotary members will work the floor at Bernardo’s serving dinner during the evening.

“We’re looking forward to seeing everyone out at Bernardo’s,” Rotary committee member Matt Hicks said.

Hicks said the Rotary Club and donors fund the annual project in large part with the dinner and others work to anonymously identify the children in need.

The group concentrates on children from the school district in grades K-6.

The dinner brings in about 50 percent of the funding needed to assist the approximately 75 children the Rotary and other donors help out each year. Tamme Taran and Denise Frandino help coordinate the effort each year, Hicks said.

As the holiday season cranks up and it’s time to get out Christmas shopping or getting kids to practice or any of myriad reasons people might be in a hurry, the dinner is a perfect time to leave the cooking to someone else.

“And you certainly get plenty of food,” Hicks said.

Tickets will be available in advance at TD Bank, Manchester Newspapers and by calling Hicks at home at 642-9027; or patrons can pay at the door.
