Maxwell Park and Rec spaghetti feed raises funds for pool

Maxwell FundraiserA home-cooked meal, complete with spaghetti, garlic bread, salad, and cookies for $10?

You’d be hard pressed to find a better dinner deal in the hamlet of Maxwell, and perhaps that’s why the Maxwell Recreations and Park District’s spaghetti feed fundraiser was such a resounding success.

Volunteers and dinner organizers were a bit worried on Friday, when there were only 17 dinners pre-sold,

Those fears came to naught, as that number ballooned to 64 before the dinner got going.

“Really, my goal was 40 dinners,” said Samantha Wilkins, volunteer, dinner organizer, and the woman behind the spaghetti recipe.

When all was said and done, Maxwell Recreations and Park district had sold about 100 dinners and raised more than $1,000, all of which will go toward keeping the town pool open.

To put that into perspective, roughly 1 in 12 people in Maxwell were fed by the Maxwell Recreations and Park District’s spaghetti feed on Saturday.

Is it safe to say the dinner exceeded expectations?

“Oh yeah. It way exceeded my expectations, because the only way we sold pre-sold was door-to-door and word of mouth,” Wilkins said during the fundraiser. “Considering what little advertising we did, it is going very well.”

Directors Randy Wilkins and Kyle Miller were on hand at the event, along with newly appointed director Dale Johnson — who has long been a fixture at the Recreations and Park District meetings and events. Now, Johnson will be a part of the decision making process for the district.

“I’m looking forward to working with the other members of the board in an official capacity and supporting our community,” Johnson said as the dinner drew to a close. “I’m looking forward to new ideas and new projects.”

Among the other volunteers who played a big part were Joe Lewis and Leighann Morris.

District to raise funds for victims of Clayton Fire

Maxwell’s next movie night is set to take place on Saturday, and all proceeds from the snack bar for this week will be donated to assist the victims of the Lake County fire.

Running concurrent with it’s regular movie night will be a bake sale, the proceeds from which will also be donated. If community members are interested in donating a baked good or making an outright donation, they should contact one of the directors or volunteers.
