According to the Feb. 17 issue of the Wall Street Journal, the hovering recession is impacting more than just Wall Street. It’s also messing with Main Street across America.
Due to lack of money, the article laments, towns across the country are cancelling events ranging from The Goose Festival to the Fire Ant Festival: even a Poetry Festival! What next?
The Good News is that Steilacoom’s traditional Spaghetti Dinner is still on for this Friday, Feb. 20 at the Community Center, so tell all your friends and come enjoy this ever-popular event.
Doors open at 5:30 for the Steilacoom Chamber of Commerce’s Spaghetti Dinner (with proceeds benefiting SHS Scholarships). For the past several years this long-celebrated event has held in conjunction with the Steilacoom Historical Museum Association’s Silent Auction; another fine community activity.
Tickets for the community meal are available at the door or in advance at Steilacoom Marine Services. Prices: $6.95 for adults and $3.95 for kids, include spaghetti and the Colonel’s famous meat sauce, tossed salad, french bread, beverage and dessert.
Music by Larry Juhnke is a highlight of the evening, as are the many fine auction items available that night. Don’t miss it. Phone 584-4177 for more information.
(For those who live on Anderson Island, Feb. 20 also is the night for the island’s traditional chili feed at Anderson Island Elementary School. Proceeds benefit school projects. Phone 884-4901 for details.)
