All are welcome to a community spaghetti dinner on March 29, at the Ponoka Moose Lodge, located south of Ponoka, just off of Highway 2A.

The dinner starts at 6 p.m. and the cost is $5 per person at the door (cash only).

As part of the Loyal Order of Moose’s mandate is caring for children and seniors, the lodge keeps the costs of the dinner affordable, said Loyal Order of Moose Lodge 1633 Ponoka vice president Rose Nicholson.

“We’re trying to focus on bringing people together,” said Nicholson, adding that getting together as a community was something people missed during COVID.

“It’s more for families to get out and get some socialization at a low cost.”

Whether you’re looking to join a table and chat with a new friend or wanting to get the kids out of the house for a couple of hours, the Moose Lodge invites you to come on in, pull up a chair and bring your appetite.

Diners will enjoy spaghetti, garlic bread, salad and a dessert served by Karma Catering.

There will also be a cash bar.

During the dinner, cheque presentations will be made to Ponoka Elementary School. The lodge is donating $1,000 to the school’s breakfast and lunch program, $1,000 to its snack bin program and $1,000 to the Grade 6 camp in May.

The funds were raised through the lodge’s casino.

Following the supper, there will be some fun games, bingo and prizes, including chocolates, candies and small toys.

There will be a cornhole game, and maybe some cards will come out, said Nicholson.

Any profit from the event will go towards fixing up the building, she said.

This will be the lodge’s second spaghetti dinner of the year.

For the first dinner back in February, just under 100 people showed up, but they can accommodate as much as 200 people

The lodge is hoping to make the dinners a monthly event, said Nicholson.

Another possible upcoming event is a steak fry.

For more information, contact Nicholson at 403-358-8400.
