A steady stream of diners made their way through the doors at the Escalon United Methodist Church on Saturday evening, ready to dig in to the annual spaghetti supper.

Served in an all-you-can-eat style, the meal included spaghetti, salad, bread, beverages and ice cream cups for dessert. Along with the dinner, you could purchase homemade jams and jellies to take home and also get tickets for the next fundraising meal being planned at the church, the omelet dinner scheduled in March.

Organizers said the spaghetti dinner helps raise money for general church expenses and such projects as roof repairs, and the meal was offered as either a dine-in or take-out.

Hours for the dinner were 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. and workers made sure the food was hot, fresh and ready for diners throughout the evening.

The omelet dinner, meanwhile, is planned for Saturday, March 21 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will feature ‘build your own’ omelets, cottage fries, fruit, biscuits and beverages. Tickets, $8 for adults, and $4 for children 5 to 10, are available at the church. This will be the eighth year for the omelet dinner.
