Spaghetti Dinner

Reid Zura

On Friday, February 17th the National Honor Society hosted their annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser at the high school.

The event started at 4:30 but members and their parents of Eastwood’s NHS helped to set it up immediately after school.

The Spaghetti dinner is a fundraiser to support the National Honor Society. The money made goes towards scholarships, graduation cords, the induction ceremony and many other services hosted by NHS throughout the year.

The spaghetti dinner was a huge success. We send a special ‘thank you’ out to all who donated:

Perrysburg Walmart

BG Pizza Hut

The Andersons

Also, a special thank you to all the NHS members and their parents for volunteering their time to the dinner and preparing for it weeks ahead.
