About 190 people chowed down at last Thursday’s Spaghetti Dinner fund-raiser to send 5th and 6th graders at Chester-Andover Elementary School to Keewaydin Environmental Education Camp, raising about $1,664.

The annual event — held at the school cafeteria — brings out parents, their kids and school personnel to help prepare the sauce, pasta, garlic bread, meatballs and salad, while a cadre of CAES students don aprons and serve their eager patrons.

Last year’s dinner raised $1,400 to send the kids to the week long camp, located in Salisbury, Vt., in the spring of 2016.  It costs about $235 per pupil to send a child to the camp. Fund-raisers are held throughout to keep the program running.

Tables were decorated with simulated hobo stoves, which the kids will learn to use at Keewaydin.
