Annual March Meatball Madness Set At United Baptist Church of Scriba

SCRIBA – Are you interested in who has the most delicious meatballs in Oswego County?

If so, you won’t want to miss this exciting event.

On March 23, the United Baptist Church of Scriba will host the fourth annual March Meatball Madness Spaghetti Dinner at our church this year.

The church is located on 5111 State Route 104 East, right next to Dahl’s Diner.

All proceeds will go to support the local “Blessings in a Backpack” program in Mexico.

Serving will start at 4 p.m. and continue until 6 p.m.

Guest chef Brian Taylor will be managing the kitchen during this event.

At 4:30 p.m., our four renowned judges (Pastor Jim Stone, Chaplain of Hutchings Psychiatric Center; Pastor Colon Wright, Teen and Adult Challenge Supervisor; David Colvin, 30-year math teacher at Mexico High School and Ryan Lanigan, Mexico High School principal) will begin taste testing meatballs from these seven locations who have donated them to the cause: Daddy Ed’s, The Eis House, Bosco’s Meats, Canale’s, Paul’s Big M, Lakeside Restaurant and Denise’s Deli.

The judges will determine who is rewarded with the “Best Meatballs in Oswego County” plaque that was donated by Lupien’s Gifts and Engraving.

Dinners will include: spaghetti and meatballs, tossed salad, dinner rolls (donated by Stefano’s Pizzeria and Restaurant) and a homemade dessert.

Take-outs will be available.

Prices are as follows: veterans: $5, adults: $10, children (6-12) $5 and children 5 and younger eat free.

100% of the proceeds from this event will go toward sending food home every week of the school year with elementary school age children who are in the free or reduced meal program at the New Haven and Mexico elementary schools.

It costs $80 to support one child for an entire school year.

If you aren’t able to attend, but would still like to donate to the cause, you can send a check made payable to the United Baptist Church of Scriba located at 5111 State Route 104E, Oswego, NY 13126. Please note on the check “Blessings in a Backpack.”
