We are most grateful for those of you who attended and supported our annual Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser, held at the Fenwick Crab House, on Saturday, Nov. 3.
It was a resounding success. In the space of just five hours, we served 537 complete spaghetti dinners — with marinara sauce, meatballs, sausage, bread, salad, a drink and a homemade desert prepared by Lions and spouses of club members.
This was our 21st year hosting a benefit dinner and it can truly be thought of as a community effort. Thirty local merchants and individuals provided the vast majority of the food items, the needed supplies and very generous cash contributions, thus assuring the financial success of this effort.
A very special thanks to the following for their support of our organization and their generosity (names appearing in alphabetical order…):
Al Casapulla’s, Al Jordan’s Rooftop Restaurant, Bayville Shores, Best Drywall, Bob’s Marine Service, Boulevard Lincoln Mercury, Brasure’s Auto Repair, Brasure’s Pest Control, Bruce & Sandy Bennett of Roxana Mini-Storage, Cottage Café, Countryside Café, Delvecchio’s Bakery, Devito’s Deli, DiFebo’s Restaurant, E.S. Gregory & Associates, Fisher’s Popcorn, Gerald Hocker of Hocker’s and G&E, Grotto’s Pizza, Johnson’s Country Market, Harpoon Hanna’s Restaurant, Hastings Funeral Home, Kay Tingle Associates, Mancini’s Restaurant, Marvin’s Market, Oceanside Pizzeria, Rogers Graphics, Seashore Realty, Shady Park Mobile Homes, Treasure Beach RV Park and West Fenwick Car Wash & Self Storage.
And, a special thanks goes out to fellow Lion Scott Fornwalt, who once again allowed us to use his Fenwick Crab House restaurant, the kitchen facilities and a number of his key staff members.
Thanks, too, to over 40 of our club members who did the preparation, serving and the cleanup. These were amply supported by 16 young and eager members of Indian River High School Leo Club, a service club sponsored by Fenwick Island Lions Club. Oh, to be that young again and have all that energy…
Finally, we would like to thank Darin McCann, editor of the Coastal Point newspaper, for his continued willingness to report on the activities of our club and promote our fundraising events.
Many in our community will benefit because of your support. We thank you one and all.
