HAGERSTOWN --Â Those who remember the pasta are eager to eat it.
Italian Festa, Antietam Exchange Club's long-running fundraiser, feeds hundreds of people each year.
Frit Hill, the chairman of the event, said the biggest wave of diners usually arrives between noon and 1 p.m., when families are getting out of church.
His assessment was correct Sunday, when the pasta party was back for the 36th time.
During the first hour, the line at South Hagerstown High School was backed up, with attendees waiting to get in the cafeteria.
Inside, busy volunteers were filling plates, serving drinks, clearing tables and gathering trash.
Louise Luther and David Russo watched over a table of homemade cupcakes, cakes and other sweets, going for $1 a portion.
