Eyebrows were raised the other day at Desjardins’ Food Basics when Carissa Henry, 17, started to fill her shopping cart with bag after bag of spaghetti. Carissa, who attends Grade 12 at Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School in Hanmer, was on a mission to pick up supplies for the 2nd Annual Bishop Alexander Carter Spaghetti Dinner which is being put on by her ‘Leadership Class’ under the direction of their teacher, Mr. Jean-Gilles Larocque. 

   The dinner will be held at the school at 539 Francis Street in Hanmer, on Wednesday, March 29, 2006 from 5 to 8 p.m. .

   At only $5.00 per ticket, it is expected that the crowds will be quite large for the event, which is being held as a fund-raiser to help defray the costs of several school initiatives.

    Mr. Larocque, on behalf of the ‘Leadership Class’, is extending an invitation to the entire community to drop in for a delicious dinner and get in on a chance to win valuable door prizes.

   The major sponsors of the Spaghetti Dinner are Desjardins’ Food Basics and Chelmsford M & M Meats. Their contributions have been much appreciated.

   This will be a great way for you to show your support for the students who are working hard to make this a successful community event. Besides helping the young school raise money to buy equipment, you will also be treating yourself and your family to a wonderful dinner.
