Annual spaghetti dinner on tap for Friday

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Get your stomachs and taste buds ready, because Saint Patrick Catholic School's annual spaghetti dinner is this Friday.

Judy McKinney, a pre-k3 teacher, has been using her father's famous recipe for the past 10 years and says she can't wait to get back in the kitchen.

She says she usually makes enough spaghetti for 250 plates and is never surprised when the food runs out.

"It's a great dinner," said Principal Jim Menz. "People come from all over, not just our school and they really enjoy it."

"And everyone leaves with a full tummy and a smile on their face," McKinney said.

Tickets are $8 and you can pre-order a dinner starting at noon on Friday.

To-go orders can be picked up at 4:30 p.m., and a music show will start at 5:30 p.m.

The actual dinner will take place at 5 p.m.
