Many years ago I lived in ThunderBay, Ontario. There was a large Italian population there and they would hold a Spaghetti Social dinner every couple of weeks or so as a fund raiser for their community projects. You could go and dine in a specific area with crusty bread , salad and wine etc. along with others or you could bring your own pail/bowl/pot or some other container and you could get the spaghetti and sauce to go.
All for a set price.
I loved this type of community social with the Italian ladies cooking up batches of authentic Italian "spaghet" and the gentlemen serving.
Does anyone remember these type of SPAGHETTI dine up, fund raisers. and are there any still going on today?
