Tradition revived May 6 at St. Joe, Arma
In the late ’60s a group of Italian ladies of the parish, led by Emma Pastore, began cooking spaghetti and meatballs for a parish meal served in March around St. Joseph’s feast day.
The cooking and celebration stopped in the late ’80s until recently when Fr. Roger Lumbre, in his first year as pastor, decided it was time for an event that would bring the parish together.
That’s all it took. St. Joseph parishioners decided they would resurrect the spaghetti dinner with the original recipes. Over 400 diners were served including 100 carry-outs.
