The aroma of hamburger meat, tomato sauce and spices filled the Monsignor Malinowski Center, as well as the surrounding neighborhood, on Thursday while more than 50 volunteers prepared for the 72nd Annual Spaghetti Dinner at St. Anthony's Catholic Church on Sunday.
Members of the St. Anthony's Altar Society, the Bryan Lions Club, the Knights of Columbus and other volunteers started the process around 8 a.m. The volunteers, ranging in age from teenagers to 90-year-olds, cooked 450 pounds of hamburger and 300 gallons of sauce on Thursday, and altogether they will cook close to 9,000 meatballs and 600 gallons of sauce, the most ever made for a spaghetti dinner, said Judy Scarmardo Comeaux, a member of the Altar Society. On Sunday morning they will start cooking 800 pounds of noodles as they prepare to serve over 3,000 plates of food.
