Thank you one and all who attended and made this year’s event a great success. We hope you join us every year. Kids and grandparents alike had a fun evening out and a delicious spaghetti dinner. Our generous sponsors and donors, who are too numerous to mention in this letter, will be properly thanked in our thank you ad and by mail.

We would like to take this time to thank the many volunteers without whom Pasta On The Lake would not happen.
