Organizers reported the recent 9th annual An Evening in Tuscany spaghetti dinner in support of volunteer drivers with Faith in Action for Cass County was a success.
The change to a curbside/pick-up event served more than 200 people, with cars lined up around the block at times.
Faith in Action volunteer chef Mike Bohanon and board members, volunteers and staff served the meal of spaghetti with garlic rounds and dessert. Waiting curbside also provided time to talk about volunteer drivers and the services offered by Faith in Action volunteers in their communities, as neighbors helping neighbors, a news release stated.
“We were overwhelmed by the community support this year,” stated Board Chair Dee Oliver in the release. “We ran out of both food and serving containers.”
