Spaghetti supper set for March 3

The LSHS Backpack Program spaghetti supper will take place on Sunday, March 3 at First United Methodist Church. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 10 and under.

After two successful years, the youth groups of several area churches will again host a spaghetti supper to benefit the Lexington Senior High School backpack program, which currently provides 50 students at the school with a supply of nutritious food to sustain them through the weekend.

The supper will take place Sunday, March 3 at First United Methodist Church on Main Street and will feature a lunch and dinner seating as well as a take-out option. Lunch will be served at 12:15 p.m. and dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. Those opting for take-out can pick up their meal between 4 and 5 p.m.

The Lexington Senior High School chorus will perform during the dinner service.

Tickets can be purchased from youth group members at First Presbyterian Church, First United Methodist Church, First Lutheran Church, and Grace Episcopal Church or by contacting Cathy Riggan at

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 10 and under.

Drawing between 200 and 400 people annually, the spaghetti supper fundraiser historically has raised about $5,000 – enough money to sustain the LSHS backpack program for about half the school year.

Communities In Schools of Lexington/Davidson County acts as a liaison between schools with backpack programs and the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest N.C., which facilitates the nationwide initiative.

Currently there are 11 backpack programs serving 550 students in both the Lexington City and Davidson County school systems.
