September Spaghetti Spread is Woman’s Club Hot Ticket in Holtville

Guests who would like to enjoy the upcoming spaghetti dinner at the Woman’s Club of Holtville do not even have to leave the comfort of their car since they can have it to go at a drive-through window. The big feed starts at noon Sept. 26 at club headquarters at 219 E. Sixth St. and runs to 6 p.m. or until the food runs out. “It’s darn good spaghetti,” assured Deborah Thornburg, club president. “It’s a chunky meat sauce with chunky vegetables and it has no sugar like a lot of sauces do, but has some great Italian spices. And it’s huge portions; most people can’t finish it in one sitting.” The meal includes salad, garlic bread and desserts (to be announced) provided by the Pine Elementary School eighth grade class. Revenue from the desserts are channeled back to the school and usually support an end-of-the-year field trip for the students. The balance of proceeds support three categories of scholarships with first, second and third places. The first category helps high school graduates with college tuition. The second assists students going into a medical field. A third is dedicated to a junior or senior in college moving on to post-graduate studies who could use a bit of financial aid. The Woman’s Club will also be happy to host those guests that prefer their meal in the traditional slow-food mode and welcomes them to enjoy dinner at one of the club’s plentiful tables. Those who dine in are welcome to join the members of the Woman’s Club for a game of bridge. Any organization, business or school can have meals delivered. However, it is recommended to phone in by no later than 10:30 a.m., Sept. 26. Dining in or out, servings are all the same size and cost $10 each. For tickets or further information call (760) 996-2781. “It’s a great, practical fundraiser and always does well,” recalled Thornburg. “I really enjoy the chit-chat with the people I greet at the drive-through window.” The Woman’s Club of Holtville is a dynamic nonprofit organization with a mission to serve and help the residents of Holtville and Imperial Valley.
