The PTSA Spaghetti Dinner and Auction fundraiser is to be held Feb. 9 at the Haskell Brothers VFW Hall on Main St. in Warrensburg. Scheduled for 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., the event is to raise money for the Warrensburg Elementary School playground, which is in great need of renovations.
The menu ingredients are being donated by the VFW 4821 Men’s Auxiliary, and its members have volunteered as chefs — and we hear the PTSA appreciates their generosity. The fee for dinner is $7 for adults and $5 for children. For details, call Eddie Bates at 260-1212.
To join the PTSA, stop into the Elementary School and pick up a membership form, Adult membership is still just $7 and a student membership is only $4.
