Spaghetti dinner helps young people go on trip

Senior Youth 2 Christ (Y2C) members hosted a spaghetti dinner at Clearwater Community Baptist Church on Friday evening, Oct. 2.

Y2C is a group serving the youth of Clearwater and Vavenby. The purpose of the supper was to help raise money to go towards their trip to a conference put on by the Prairie Young People Association (PYPA) in Calgary.

The Y2C girls one pot of spaghetti sauce, the boys another. Everybody was told to try both and then vote on which they liked best.

Approximately 50 people attended. Many brought baked goods to donate towards a silent auction. There was a big selection to choose from.

To get everyone’s attention youth leader Steve Raschke let out his signature loud yell, signalling it was time for the event to begin. Kim Bridge, who has been leading Y2C for the past year, was the MC for the night.

Dinner was delicious, and (grudgingly) Kim Bridge announced that the boys’ spaghetti sauce was the winner.

At this time the youth were called to the front of the room to tell jokes. The jokes were real groaners, such as: Q – “Have you heard the joke about the butter?” A-“I better not tell you, it might spread” and Q – “Where do bulls get their messages?” A -“On a bull-etin board”

After supper there was a presentation of pictures from the past year of Senior and Junior Y2C events. Bridge commented throughout the presentation, providing background information and explanations.

Before the end of the night everyone was given a few more minutes to bid on the various baked goods and then the winners were announced. A total of $950 was raised for the trip to the PYPA youth conference.

Bridge was thrilled that Y2C was receiving such generous support and said, “Thanks Clearwater for investing in the youth of our community. I believe that it is worth every penny!”
