Keystone Club hosts its 8th Annual Spaghetti Supper

The Heartland Youth Centre was host to the Keystone Club’s eighth annual spaghetti supper event on Thursday evening, Feb. 9.

The Heartland Youth Centre (HYC) was host to the Keystone Club’s eighth annual spaghetti supper event on Thursday evening, Feb. 9 as community members from Stettler and area came in for an evening of fundraising and socializing.

With a simple menu of spaghetti and meat sauce, along with a green salad and cupcake dessert, the supper has been one of the club’s main fundraisers.

The club consists of youth, aged between 14-18 years, who imbibe the qualities of leadership and team work by volunteering in the community through fundraising projects such as the spaghetti supper.

The evening raised $350 approximately, after expenses.

“The funds will be used to support their volunteer efforts and to send the Keystone members to leadership conferences,” said Sara Wengryn, program director for more than 15 years and board member at HYC. “Some examples of their volunteerism include setting up or cleaning up at events such as the Jordan’s Journey Valentine’s Dance and the Festival of Lights, park and highway clean up in the spring, besides providing face painting and other children’s activities at the trade show.”

Wengryn said she has seen the youth members grow, which has been rewarding.

“I love watching the youth grow up at the club, this growth can be seen in small behavioural changes and their achievements such as scholarship or leadership awards, or even when a youth makes a friend.”

According to Wengryn, some of her favourite moments have been when the youth have reached out to her for help and when they came back to her as adults to share their successes with her.

On May 4, the Keystone Club members will attend the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada (BGC) National Youth Forum in Ottawa, where numerous BGC youth groups and Keystone Club members will come together for leadership development.

“I would like to thank you all those who attended the spaghetti supper,” Wengryn said. “The youth take great pride in their efforts and they truly appreciate your support.”
