In honor of Two Harbors' football team's first trip to state since 1977, there will be a community spaghetti dinner Friday, Nov. 9, and a send off for the team when it leaves for the game against Perham on Saturday, Nov. 10.
The Agates ended a 41-year-old state playoff drought with a 26-18 win over Greenway/Nashwauk-Keewatin on Nov. 1 at Malosky Stadium in Duluth.
The dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Two Harbors Moose Lodge, 709 First Ave. There is no cost and it is open to the public. There will be a video tribute to the team and head coach Tom Nelson will speak to the crowd, according to organizer Sue Bott.
Bott said they are asking as many people as possible to come out Saturday morning and line the streets of Two Harbors as the Agates are escorted out of town by the police and fire departments.
Two Harbors will play Perham at 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at Brainerd High School.
