Church youth group sponsors dinner

The Church of the Holy Cross youth group will be holding an Italian dinner on Saturday Jan. 29 at 5 p.m. The dinner will include soup or salad, a choice of lasagna, Fettuccine Alfredo, spaghetti with meat sauce or plain sauce, or a combination plate, plus bread, coffee and tiramisu or cannoli for dessert. The charge is $7 for adults and $5 for children under 12.

This fundraiser is intended to help offset expenses of a Youth Works mission trip this summer, in which youth help upgrade or clean up homes of the needy.

Youth Works is also sponsoring fundraisers involving Burger King coupons, and an raffle set for spring, with prizes featuring works of art donated by area artists.

Marie Fisher and Pat Sullivan are two of the artists now committed to the fundraiser. Other artists seeking to donate donate work, call Beth or Damian at 504-4312

She has accepted the position following the recent retirement of Norma Hastings who served the as library director for 34 years. Lisa Bartow and her husband Brian have been very active in leading local area spiritual youth groups, and they've spearheaded mission trips to Haiti -- both long before and after the tragic earthquakes of January 2010 occurred.
