Based on the success of these events last year, our Council will once again be offering carryout Spaghetti Dinners to parishioners, Oakland University students and local residents on several Thursdays this Fall and Winter. On the evenings of Sep 16 & 30, Oct 14 & 28, Nov 11, Dec 9, and Jan 13 & 27, we'll be preparing and handing out these made-to-order spaghetti dinners to our guests. Each meal will consist of pasta with either meat or meatless sauce, a greenbean vegetable, garlic bread, salad and a dessert. Due to the virus, there will be no dine-in option. We'll be preparing and packaging the meals at St. John Fisher Church, where our guests will pick up their dinners. The meals will be priced at $10 per adult, $5 for children 12 and under and $7 for Oakland University students showing an ID. We wanted to make all our Council members aware of these upcoming events and to solicit your assistance. As you can guess, we'll need several Council members to help prepare the meals, take call-in orders, package and hand out the carryouts, and clean up afterward. To reduce our volunteers' time commitments, we'll be running an early and a late shift for each event. With your assistance, we'll all focus on doing this in the safest way possible for our volunteers and our guests.
So if you think you and/or members of your family could help us out for a few hours on one or more of these dates, please sign up below and mark your calendars. We'll be providing masks (if they're once again required), and we'll still be trying our best to keep some proper distance between our workers. And remember, volunteers eat for free.
And even if you're still a little concerned about volunteering during these still-uncertain times, please at least consider ordering a spaghetti carryout and "supporting the cause." And while you're thinking about it, please help us spread the news about these events to others you see or talk to as well.
Orders can be placed by calling or texting to 248-296-2853 between 4:30 and 6:30, providing your name, number of adult and child meals you'll need and indicating meat or meatless sauce. We'll inform of you what time your order will be ready for pickup. Then simply drive over to St. John Fisher (the front door) and we'll run your order out to your vehicle, take payment and offer our thanks. We'll be accepting cash, credit cards and checks.
