St. Mary Catholic Community School in Crown Point held their annual Spaghetti Supper on Wednesday. Despite the freezing temperatures, once again the masses came, they saw, and they ate spaghetti to support St. Mary’s School! “It was great to see so many wonderful people attend Spaghetti Supper once again this year. This event is about far more than just a good meal. It’s about community. We had people walk over from down the block and we had a gentleman fly in from Salt Lake City, Utah to attend,” said the school’s principal, Tom Ruiz.
Mrs. Emily Briseno chaired this year’s event. The committee also included Mrs. Michealene Zarach who ran the Country Store which sold crafts and other items. The committee is already planning Spaghetti Supper #59.
When an announcement was made that additional volunteers were needed, many of the school’s teachers and aides rolled up their sleeves to help. One of them was Mrs. Amanda Wysocki who said, “I was happy to pitch in and help! It is a great event, rich in St. Mary’s tradition.”
In conjunction with Spaghetti Supper and adding to the festivities, students were allowed to vote for their favorite teacher to take on Principal Ruiz in a pie-eating contest. The teacher with the most votes was first-grade teacher, Mrs. Gina Thomas. The contest, not without a little controversy, was videotaped and can be seen on the school’s YouTube channel:
