Turkey Supper Dates

October 16 to 18, 2013

Please remember that it is not necessary to be at the
supper “forever”. If everyone takes a turn, we can all
help each other and feel good about volunteering to
support our church. Sign-up sheets are on the tables
in the Narthex and next to the Fellowship Hall Door.
Don Eroh is looking for people to sell tickets. He
has plenty for everyone, so get them and sell, sell, sell.
The fall Supper is usually our best dinner fundraiser and
is easy to promote. Why? Because people love to eat –
especially good food!! And we’ve been complimented
again and again about how really good it is!
As always, we need people to cook the turkeys.
Allen Dennis is the person to see if you can volunteer
your time for this important item (what’s a Turkey
Supper without turkey, right?) The turkeys arrive either
at your home or at the church (depending on how you
arrange it with Allen).
On Thursday evening at 6:00 p.m., walls are taken
down and tables are set up. Then there is the cleaning
and cutting up of the vegetables for the pickled cabbage.
Early Friday morning about 8:00 a.m. we start
making the pickled cabbage and stuffing. Some foods
just taste so much better if you let the flavors chill and
mix. (I learned that from the cooking shows)
Saturday morning at 8:00 am is when we clean the
meat off the turkeys, which is easier to do if the turkeys
are warm. Please remember to bring the turkey broth
to make the gravy. Those of you who clean your own
turkeys and then deliver them really help to speed up this
process. Then, of course, the actual event begins at 3:00
and goes to about 7:00 p.m. We can always use lots of
hands for serving food, working in the kitchen, busing
tables, and waiting on tables. By the end of the supper at
7:00 p.m., the workers, (many of whom have been there
since 2:30 p.m. heating up the turkey, making gravy,
making sure the vegetables and stuffing are hot so that
everything is all
