The cost will be $7 per plate and take out will be made available. Cost will include a serving of spaghetti, one dessert, soda or water, coffee, salad, and bread.

Please help spread the word. For someone who's served our communities and has helped save lives, keeping Ed in our prayers and helping offset his medical bills really is the least we can do.
