Dr. Sarah Foulger reported Tuesday, Jan. 22 that the pasta dinner held at the church Saturday, Jan. 19 raised $9,791 after all the cash and checks were totaled. Foulger also reported that donations from the donation box at the Y amounted to an additional $1,636. She said she delivered the donations to the Coast Guard station on Tuesday.
