What a great event the Spaghetti Western was. It was held at the Wawota Town Hall on April 2. A decorated hall, live music and a bar, kids’ games, a photo booth, tattoos and supper (spaghetti and meat sauce, Caesar salad, cheese sticks and decorated cupcakes). After supper four large prizes were awarded to lucky participants.
