Forget the robins. Never mind the start of baseball. Ignore the blossoms. All of these things are nice, but the surest sign of spring is the Virginia’s Annual Community Spaghetti Supper hosted by the Virginia Masonic Lodge.
The popular fundraising event again will be held at St. Luke Catholic Hall, 170 N. Main Street in Virginia from 4 to 7 p.m. April 5.
One of the Virginia Masonic Lodge’s key mission is supporting local youth and community organizations. Since January of 2013, the lodge has donated a total of $3,550 to local organizations.
Those organizations include: Virginia Little League, Virginia Boy Scouts, Virginia Summer Daze, Virginia FFA, Virginia’s Square One, Virginia Day Care, Virginia Post Prom, Cass County Food Bank, Philadelphia 4-H Club, as well as support for a child with serious health problems and sponsorship of the Virginia High School Academic Bowl Team.
“We appreciate the support we receive in this community, and we look forward to doing even more during this year,” said Virginia Lodge Master Warren Musch.
In addition to dining service at the Catholic Hall, Musch said carry-outs will be available. Furthermore, arrangements can be made for the delivery of meals within the city of Virginia to shut-ins and to those who do not drive.
Tickets will be available at the door. Advance tickets may be purchased at Reynolds & Sons or from any Virginia Masonic Lodge member. The cost is $7.25 per person and $3.50 for children 12 and under.
