The music was flowing and the food was abundant at the annual SPHS Music Boosters Spaghetti Dinner on Friday February 23. Parents, friends, students and faculty gathered in the SPHS gym Friday evening to support the music programs at the high school where there was a silent auction and a homemade spaghetti dinner served by the booster volunteers.
