The Military Heritage Museum held its annual Spaghetti Luncheon Tuesday at the Punta Gorda Elks Lodge. Area businesses sent in their best “servers” to bring in some big tips to be donated to the museum. The cost of the spaghetti dinner was $15, but anything needed to eat it with — such as wooden spoons or chopsticks — along with beverages, salad or bread, cost extra. The lunch once again was a huge success. Here, Julie Mathis, Stacy Calvino, Kim Devine and Julie Price are at celebrity server Leah Pitts’ table. Pitts is the district director for U.S. Congressman Tom Rooney.
