Fundraiser benefits Camanche students

CAMANCHE — All-you-can-eat spaghetti is on the menu for the Camanche Committee of the Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce and Camanche High School seniors are the meal’s beneficiaries.

The 17th annual Camanche Committee Spaghetti Supper is from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at Camanche High School and because the Camanche boy’s basketball team will take on Northeast High School, organizers expect this to be one of the best-attended events in recent years.

“This game especially against Northeast is typically a well-attended game so we’re thinking it’s going to be a really great night,” Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce president Nathan Sondegroth said.

All of the proceeds from Friday’s meal will go toward a scholarship fund benefiting continuing education for Camanche High School seniors.

In years past, the Camanche committee has been able to dole out several scholarships to qualified candidates, and this year they are hoping to raise enough money at the annual spaghetti dinner to continue that trend.

“Typically the money can run from $250 to $1,000, just depending on how many (applicants) we have and how many have qualified for it,” Camanche committee member Gail Clements said. “Even if it’s a small scholarship it will at least buy their books. With the cost of college, anything at this point helps.”

Camanche School District Superintendent Tom Parker agrees that any little bit helps students fulfill their dreams of a college education, and said that having such commitment from a local organization to make those scholarships available is an amazing to see.

“I think it just speaks well of the community that would take their time to volunteer to these events and then in turn make those scholarships available to our students,” Parker said. “It speaks to the community support of kids that are looking to continue their education in college.”
