The best desserts in town and spaghetti sauce to die for! It is time for the Annual Trotwood-Madison Historical Society Spaghetti Dinner. The cooks have the ovens going and the Spaghetti Sauce Chefs have dusted off the highly secret recipe for the best spaghetti sauce this side of Italy.

The spaghetti dinner will be held Saturday March 24, 2011 4:30 – 7:30 PM at the Church of the Brethren, 208 East Main Street, Trotwood, Ohio.

Just what will this outstanding dinner cost you? I am proud to say that inflation has not caused us to increase our costs. The cost is: Adults - $7.00 and Children under 12 - $3.50. Dinner includes spaghetti, bread, salads, desserts and beverage.

All profits from the dinner will be used to help fund programs offered by the Trotwood-Madison Historical Society. such as a scholarship for high school students graduating from Trotwood Madison High School.

Please call Regina Kleinhenz (854-4505) for ticket information.

Come out and join us. You'll be glad you did!

I have read a lot about the flood and have seen some of the pictures.  This sounds like a great program and I will attend if my schedule allows.  If you are interested in local history, this is a "must attend" program.
