Yearly Harvest Dinner

Each year church members gather for an autumn tradition, the Harvest Dinner. This year volunteers worked in teams of 10 for about 12 hours to create and serve the meal to approximately 125 people. The team prepared 140 pounds of roast beef, 100 pounds of potatoes, and 2 ½ cases of fresh green beans.

The brown gravy was wonderful, tasty with a nice firm consistency.

The traditional old-fashioned bread stuffing is a real favorite. Since it was not stuffed in a turkey it’s probably best called dressing here.

Classic dinner rolls for those who have to have bread with dinner.

A selection of apple and pumpkin pies were available and the pie ladies were generous with the Cool Whip.
