On 20 April, the parish invited members of the local community to be guests for a community spaghetti dinner. Over seventy people accepted the invitation and enjoyed spaghetti with wonderfully delicious sauces — either meat or vegan. Caesar salad and crusty bread rounded out the meal. And then there were the desserts — all home-made.
The meal was carefully prepared by local chefs Doris and Sue and Peggy with the assistance of their capable crew. “The trick to making a really great sauce,” Doris confided, “is using all fresh ingredients and letting the sauce simmer gently for a long time.” Everyone commended the chefs for their fantastic sauce.
An added feature for the evening was dinner music performed on piano by our favourite Archdeacon, David Peasgood.
There was no charge for enjoying the dinner but many people wished to support the work of the parish through a free-will offering. This was not expected but was gratefully appreciated. Thank you and blessings to you.
There were several new faces in the crowd in addition to local residents who often attend parish functions. Among new faces, were people who have recently moved to the Buckhorn area. “Great to see you! And welcome to a great little community.”
As with the many other events undertaken by the parish, this dinner would not be possible without the support of many parishioners who contributed to its success in many ways from advertising, setting up, serving coffee and tea, doing the dishes, and with cleaning up. Thanks to each person who helped! And, special thanks to Doris, Sue, and Peggy.
It was a really fun evening.
