Fall is here and so is the beginning of the preparations for Our Savior’s annual Lutefisk Supper! The worker and food sign-up sheets are prepared and are in the back of Our Savior’s sanctuary for you to look over and mark your name down in the ways you can help. Following is the list of the preparation dates and times. Please note that the meatballs are being done on Saturday the 7th! Cash donations are welcome to help defray the cost of the fish, hamburger, pork and anything else that needs to be purchased. You can mail your donation to the Our Savior’s office marked “Lutefisk”.
October 7th 9:00 am Roll & brown meatballs to put in the freezer
October 22nd 11:00 am Peel potatoes and cook for lefse
October 23rd 8:30 am Make lefse
October 24th 6:00 pm Peel potatoes, carrots, shred cabbage, set up, etc.
October 25th Lutefisk Supper! Start serving at 4:00 PM
Please note the above dates and times and know that every available pair of hands is needed to make a successful dinner.
Carol Hemersbach leads the lefse making and is looking for not only lefse rollers, but fryers, cutters & packagers, so not all jobs require standing.
If any organization has food in the chest freezer in the furnace room or the freezer in the kitchen refrigerator, please have it removed by Friday, October 6th to make room for the meatballs. Also, we need the refrigerator in the kitchen, cleaned out by Sunday, October 22nd. Thanks!
Plans are well underway for Nazareth’s annual Swiss Steak Dinner which will be held on Wednesday, October 11. The menu for the evening will be Swiss Steak, mashed potatoes & gravy, glazed carrots, fruit salad, and all the trimmings, including dessert. The dinner is served family style and will be served, 4:30 to 6:00 pm. Tickets for the dinner are $12.00 for Adults (13 & up); $6.00 for Kids 6 to 12 and FREE for Kids 5 & under.
A bake sale will be held in the back of the sanctuary featuring home-baked “goodies”. The basket raffles being sponsored by the Luther League will also be available in the sanctuary. Tickets may be purchased at the bake sale for your chance to win one of the baskets and help support their trip to the Youth Gathering in Houston in the summer of 2018.
