HELENA – Canyon Creek 4-H in Helena teaches future leaders the importance of serving the community through their 18th annual Sweetheart Spaghetti Feeding at the Helena Valley Community Center.

“For this annual event, our overall goal is to teach kids to work hard and have fun,” said Katie Grady-Selby, Canyon Creek 4-H club leader.

Grady-Selby says club members went door-to-door to raise money for food for the event as well as items for a silent auction.

For $7 per person or $20 per family, people are entitled to an all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner served by club members.

For Tucker Selby and Bode Fitsimmons, being a member of the club brings them great joy.

“Making new projects, meeting new friends, learning to work with your cattle,” Selby said.

“I love making new friends, doing all the projects, going on field trips and having animals to take care of,” Fitsimmons said.

The spaghetti giveaway is the club’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and after a virtual year, it’s the first time some kids have taken part.

The money raised will be used for future events such as shopping for Intermountain children, Christmas carols for Canyon Creek residents or scholarships for club members.

“We’ve actually created scholarships for kids that we can’t have animals, and so they just have to apply for it, and then they can get money for it,” said Grady Selby.
