Students Hold Lasagna Dinner to Benefit Area Charity

by Alana J. Mauger

Student leaders at the West Campus of Montgomery County Community College will host their 10th annual Lasagna Dinner on Thursday, Feb. 17 from 5-7 p.m. The dinner will be held in the South Hall Community Room at 101 College Drive in Pottstown. Take-out meals are also available starting at 4:30 p.m.

The dinner, which includes a choice of veggie or meat lasagna, salad, bread, beverage and dessert, costs $10 for adults and $5 for children age 10 and under. Meals can be pre-ordered Feb. 7-15 by contacting the Office of Student Leadership and Involvement at 610-718-1973 or jmeehan1@mc3.edu.

Each year, the students choose a person to honor at the dinner, and all proceeds go to a charity of the honoree’s choice. This year’s honoree is Henry “Hank” Rymarowicz from the College’s Facilities Management department, who has selected the Cat Angel Network, of Pottstown.

The Cat Angel Network works to alleviate the suffering of stray cats in a no-kill shelter while finding adoption placements in approved homes. To learn more about the organization, visit http://catangel.org.

An award presentation to Rymarowicz will take place at 6:15 p.m., and music will be provided throughout the dinner by the College’s Jazz Ensemble and Montco Jams. Representatives from the Cat Angel Network will be on hand to provide information about their organization.

Previous beneficiaries of the Lasagna Dinner have included the United Way, Barth Elementary School, Reach One Touch One Ministries, Pottstown Downtown Foundation, Pottstown Library Children’s Department, Relay for Life, Family Services of Montgomery County and scholarship funds through the College’s Foundation.
