Seeing the guys cooking in the kitchen for the Fair Haven Fire Department Spaghetti Dinner last week brought back memories of those same guys as youngsters and their dads doing chef duty at the firehouse for many an event.
It’s comfort food and company for the soul — the annual Fair Haven Volunteer Fire Company’s Spaghetti Dinner.
The trek up those steps at the firehouse sets off a surge of soothing memories for any longtime Fair Havenite. The smell of sauce simmering on the stove, the familiar sound of a banquet room full of friends, the sight of the good ladies of the auxiliary serving meals and the kitchen … oh, the kitchen, where the guys who made the spaghetti and meatballs keep things cooking.
Then there’s Angelo, meatball master supreme. He watches over everything and keeps it all good.
Take a look at our slideshow above to get a glimpse into the evening and all things fine at the firehouse. Mangia!
