It’s been two hunting seasons since the folks at Old DeBorgia School invited everyone to their famous annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser, also known as Hunters Feed.
On the eve of the opening day of the big game season, the volunteers who keep the school bright and neat and available to the community, transform it into a food hall that feeds the masses as they go. that new friends are made and the camaraderie is appreciated. .
“This will be our 32nd year. It would have been our 34th but we missed 2020 and 2021 due to Covid issues,” said Lynette Walters, president of the DeBorgia Historical Schoolhouse Foundation.
She said around 15 members were involved in resurrecting this year’s event which features spaghetti with garlic bread, salad and homemade desserts. Dessert options and seconds take up more serving line than anything else.
Speaking of having a sweet tooth, they’ll have some of the 300 apple pies they made last month that they kept frozen.
“We saved a few especially to sell at spaghetti dinner and our next bake sale in November. We will also have a few jars of our spaghetti sauce for sale. These are selling out fast! Walters smiles.
The homemade apple pies and/or their popular pasta sauce that you will taste that night are $12 each. They could have easily sold pies, but they know that some people who missed the initial sale have traditionally bought them at this spaghetti oven for the upcoming holidays.
And then there’s the draw she was beaming with.
“We have a beautiful quilt Susan Charles made, a fall flower arrangement made by one of the members, gift certificates from Montana Bar (Saltese), The Hideout (DeBorgia), Town Pump and Darlows in Superior. A gift basket from Jackie’s Flowers to Superior, a BBQ sauce pack from Superior Meats, a beautiful large moose collage photo from Lincolns $50,000 Silver Dollar Bar, and a gift certificate or gift basket from St. Regis Travel Center. And all proceeds go towards the maintenance and restoration of our beloved DeBorgia School.
And the confirmation of this restoration is that the public is invited to visit the floor that evening to see what the hard work and profits have made.
Reservations are not required. Clothing is what keeps you warm, covered and comfortable, even if the room is warm. There will be no valet parking and smokers are required to do so outside near the gazebo.
Take I-90 Exit 18 onto Thompson DeBorgia Road for less than a quarter mile on Friday, October 21 from 4-7 p.m. Adults are fed for $12 and youngsters 10 and under for $7.
“We so appreciate our community who continue to support our fundraising activities! We know a lot of people have really missed this dinner over the past few years. It’s not so much about spaghetti, it’s the chance to reconnect with friends and neighbors and support our local community center,” Walters said.
