Parents discuss this Thursday’s fundraiser for Mt. Edgecumbe Preschool, which will be a “World of Cardboard”-themed spaghetti dinner and dessert auction. Attendees are asked to make cardboard creations to bring to the event, to be displayed and experienced. The dessert auction will feature cakes and pastries donated by local businesses. The funds raised will be used in part to match a grant from the Rasmuson Foundation to purchase a 14-passenger van for the preschool, to be used for field trips. The dinner will be Thursday, April 3, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Harrigan Centennial Hall. Entry is $15 for adults, and $5 for children. For more information, call 966-2675.
