Christmas Bazaar + Spaghetti Dinner

Wow! What a weekend to remember! After months of preparing (which involved a lot of praying), MDSA’s Annual Spaghetti Dinner & Christmas Bazaar came to life this past Sunday! We safely followed protocols while celebrating such a cherished tradition of ours. So many friends and family members pitched in to help our incredible S’getti Crew sell close to 800 meals. A number of our volunteers were Dads With Grads which speaks volumes for our strong community. Our school is truly one-of-a-kind; the outpouring of generosity was completely overwhelming.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
