Spaghetti with the Sisters tradition celebrates its 64th year
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A decades-old tradition continued in Milwaukee on Sunday.
Hundreds of people filled the St. Joan Antida High School for the annual Spaghetti with the Sisters Dinner.
Organizers say the meal is now part of the fabric of the community, dating back to 1955.
The spaghetti features handmade special tomato sauce and meatballs by the Pompeii Men's Club.
It's always a big hit.
"It was formed by one of our sisters, long deceased and her Italian friend. They worked out the sauce recipe and the meatball deal together, been using it all these years, a little tweaking here and there, but the same recipe gets pulled out once a year on big sheets and there you go," said Sister Monica Fumo.
This is the 64th year of the Spaghetti with the Sisters Dinner.
The money raised goes towards student scholarships.
