The 14th annual Allied Fire Department Spaghetti Feed Fundraiser is Saturday in Dresser.
The 2021 edition will be a free will donation drive-thru with guests picking up their meal at the Community Hall. Food will be served from 3-7 p.m.
COVID-19 wiped out the 2020 version. Organizers were hoping to include raffle prizes for this year’s edition, but were unable to. They hope so for next year.
“We’d like to thank the community who supported us when we didn’t even have a feed in 2020,” said coordinator Robert Thompson.
Money raised this year will be used to purchase Mustang Water Rescue Suits. Thompson explained the suits are beneficial during the winter and summer months to rescue the stranded ice fisherman or swimmer.
“They keep your body warm and provide solid buoyancy,” he added.
Guests will be sampling on noodles and sauce donated by Trollhaugen, garlic bread from Village Pizzeria and hamburger donated by local farmers.
In past years, nearly 800 people visited, however, in a scaled-down version, the number is unknown. Yet to prepare, 50 gallons of sauce will be prepared, along with 90 pounds of hamburger and 180 pounds of noodles.
The Allied Fire Department has three different stations in the town of Alden, Garfield and Dresser, servicing the townships of Alden, Garfield and Osceola.
