Salisbury — There’s no dream you can’t make into a great spaghetti recipe.
While on vacation, 6-year-old Peyton Klontz and her mother, Katie Klontz, chatted about their futures.
“We were sitting there talking and she said, ‘Mom, I want to open a restaurant,'” Katie Klontz said.
After further discussion, Peyton Crontz decided he wanted to serve spaghetti at this future restaurant. I want to use it.” I replied.
So the idea of selling spaghetti was born.
With the help of her family, Peyton Krontz began spreading word that she was selling spaghetti plates for $8 a person to raise money to help people.
“I’m really proud of her,” Katie Klontz said. I think.”
The sale was a success, and now I needed to find someone to help me with it.
Katie Clontz reached out to Trinity Oaks, a senior living community in Salisbury, and a representative told her about the Trinity Living Center. Trinity Living Center is a community-based adult day service designed to meet the needs of older adults and adults with functional and cognitive disabilities. This is a Lutheran Service Her Carolina program serving Rowan County.
Peyton Krontz and her family used the money to buy stockings filled with gifts for each TLC attendee to hand out at the center’s New Year’s Eve party.
TLC Life Enrichment Director Andrea Moore said: “It gave them hope for the future of our youth.”
As the attendees counted down, Peyton Clontz was also given the honor of dropping the ball at the party.
“She was there and loved doing it,” Katie Klontz said. “Our whole family is ready to come back and visit and help with whatever they need,” she said.
