"I've been on the board for two years, going on three," Stagno said. "But I've been a member here (at the senior center) for eight years. Time flies."
Plenty of food will be available for hungry visitors, including chili, hotdogs and popcorn as well as homemade baked goods. There'll also be crafts. If you'd like to reserve a craft table, these cost $10 to reserve. Call Madeline Gonsalves at 541-759-1019. You can drop off your donations by calling 541-294-6907.
"We did really well last year," he said. The total came in revenue came to $2,265, including from the meals.
"It made a lot of money. And all we sold was chili and hot dogs."
"I think she (Gonsalves) had 10 tables to rent," Stagno said.
He gets plenty of help each year from Gayla McKinsey, Mike Thompson and others. The South Coast Business Employment Corporation pays for food.
