BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The old expression “Be there or be square,” held true Saturday evening, at the annual Spaghetti Dinner fund raiser for the Volunteer Fire Department. Everyone who was anyone in the township attended the dinner in the Fire House!

The tables were as full as everyone’s stomach. Father Andy from Little Flower Church, officers and members of the Berkeley Heights Volunteer Rescue Squad, the Police Chief, mayor and council members, and firefighters from neighboring departments joined the crowd and helped consume pounds and pounds of pasta covered with gallons of gravy, also known as sauce, hundreds upon hundreds of meatballs and, of course fried peppers and incredible Italian bread!  All the food, with the the exception of the bread, had been prepared by the firefighters in the firehouse kitchen.

Members of the department served up the food and cadets from the department kept the food coming, served drinks and cleaned up tables. It was definitely a team effort.

Children checked out fire engines, while their parents caught up with friends and enjoyed a Saturday night out.

A highlight of the evening came when Dr. Patrick Smith of Smith Chiropractic presented the Department with a huge check for $1,000. The money was raised from the Berkeley Heights 5K Charity Road Race and Fitness Walk. which raises money for various non-profit organizations. The race this year will be held on Sunday, Sept. 17, and registration is still open here

The kitchen closed at 9 p.m. but that didn't mean the party was over, there was plenty of time left for friends to sit and talk, and for the clean up crew to finish washing up the pots and pans.
