HAGERSTOWN - With a sauce-splattered knife laid across her plate, Samantha Ebersole spun spaghetti with her fork and spoon.
Spaghetti covered the corners of some diners' mouths as they dug into heaping plates at a fundraiser Sunday, but for the 14-year-old from Williamsport, eating was a ballet of twist, spin and chomp.
Samantha, her parents and a friend were among those who turned out on a gray, chilly day to enjoy Antietam Exchange Club's 34th annual Italian Festa at South Hagerstown High School.
Frit Hill, president of Antietam Exchange Club, said he was expecting the group would feed 600 to 650 people.
Proceeds from the dinner - tickets cost $8 in advance and $9 at the door - will go toward causes that include Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washington County and a Hagerstown Community College scholarship fund, Hill said.
