The Reynoldsburg Community Association is hoping residents will consider taking the family out for an all-you-can-eat spaghetti Valentine dinner.

"The annual spaghetti dinner is our largest fundraiser each year," said Mary Hudson, a member of the association.

This year's event was specifically scheduled for the first Saturday after Valentine's Day so patrons can celebrate the day as a family, Hudson said.

Meals will be served from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 17, at the Fellowship Hall at Messiah Lutheran Church, 1200 S. Waggoner Road.

Tickets cost $8 for adults and $5 for children ages 3-12. There is no charge for children younger than 3.

Tickets may be purchased by contacting Chuck Cochran at 614-580-7218 or at the door on the evening of the event.

Hudson said the night will include "food, live entertainment, fun and fellowship," plus door prizes.

Carnations will be available to purchase "for your Valentine," she said.

Proceeds from the dinner will help support free annual community events sponsored by the Reynoldsburg Community Association, which include the July 4 parade, the Community Halloween Party and Christmas on the Towne, Hudson said.
