AFJROTC Spaghetti Dinner Highlights on September 23 at the American Legion - Post 374

This past Sunday at our local legion post 374, AFJROTC cadets held a spaghetti feed. This fundraiser helped us raise money for our military ball, as well as necessary uniform items. On top of the spaghetti feed, we also held a raffle for a 55 inch smart T.V.

The raffle was announced later that night with the winner being Edward Hainowski, uncle of Bailey Hainowski. This was a very successful spaghetti feed as we raised over $3,000. We look forward to holding future events later this month.
