The Nokesville Business Association (NBA) will hold their fifth annual Spaghetti Dinner Sept. 21 from 4 p.m.-7 p.m. at the Marsteller Drive Fire Station in Nokesville with attendees invited to drop in anytime within that 3-hour window.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children, 6-12 years of age, and children five and under are free. They can be purchased at the door or ahead of time at Nokesville Print and Copy at 12826 Fitzwater Drive in Nokesville.

This year, the NBA Spaghetti Dinner will use its proceeds to support their second annual Christmas Parade.

According to NBA Secretary Gail Williams, this year’s dinner will also include two auctions.

Live Auction items including RGIII Redskins memorabilia.

“We’re having a live auction in addition to a silent auction,” said Williams. “We’re going to have high value items (at our live auction): two vacation packages, a fishing package and some RGIII memorabilia.”

Meanwhile the silent auction will feature items such as gift bags, gift certificates, books and jewelry.

As for other exciting auction items, Williams notes a local artist has donated one of her paintings. Moreover, they will be raffling off a quilt made by Jane Cubbon, owner of Daffodil Quilts on Fitzwater Drive.

Williams said that between last year’s silent auction and the price of admission, they raised $2,800. This year, she said, they hope and expect to raise even more money, but all of the funds are needed to fund the parade.

Parades can be expensive due to the cost of police presence, road closures, signage and advertising. Additionally, the NBA would like to cover the cost of carriage rides and an open community dinner at the Church of the Brethren directly following the parade.

More auction items community members are invited to bid on at the NBA Spaghetti Dinner.

Although this is only the second year for the Nokesville Christmas Parade, Williams said it was something the community has wanted for some time.

“People had been wanting something more as the crowd was getting really big at the corner where we held the tree lighting in the past. We wanted to do something bigger and safer and to add to the Nokesville atmosphere,” Williams said.

However, beyond being a fundraiser for the Nokesville Christmas Parade, she believes the spaghetti dinner is a wonderful community event in its own right.

“It’s a wonderful time to meet with friends, catch up with old friends or meet new ones and just have fun,” Williams said.

NBA members thank all those who are contributing food for the event, and hope that many people will attend to gather with their community and also learn more about their association.

NBA is still accepting items for their silent raffle; people can donate items worth between $20 and $250 at Nokesville Print and Copy, or call 703-594-2000. Higher priced items may be eligible for the live auction.

Some of the auction items, include sports memorabilia and vacation packages are being provided by BW Unlimited.
