Calvary Lutheran Takes Over Wonderful Tradition

Friday, October 4th, 2013 -- 10:27 AM

Calvary Lutheran Church in Neillsville will be taking over a wonderful tradition.

Calvary?s church council agreed to host the Thanksgiving Dinner which was usually put together by the Methodist Church. But, with the Methodist Church?s closing it was worried that the tradition would die or a new venue would be needed.

Peggy Erickson said that they are expecting around 200 people for the meal and they will serve the usual Thanksgiving spread in a buffet style. Every year, many people call in to have their meal delivered which Calvary will gladly do. However, for those that do call in, Calvary will ask them if they?d like to be picked up and brought to the church for the meal. Peggy did admit; however, that they would have some accessibility issues as they don?t have vehicles with lifts.

Peggy also said that they need volunteers to help with the event. They need volunteers for the work day being held on the 27th and the need volunteers for the meal on Thanksgiving. She said whatever time people can donate, they will take.

Peggy also wanted to extend her gratitude to members of the former Methodist Church as they have donated all their supplies to Calvary and a core group is coming back this year to help with the meal.

If you?d like to learn more, you can call the church at 715-743-2225 and leave a message.

Feel free to contact us with questions and/or comments.
