Thanks from the Federated Church


To the Editor:

As the Federated Church Lasagna Luncheons are now over for this season, I wanted to take a moment to express our appreciation and thanks to Cash & Carry for providing a discount on all of our purchases there during the past three months. I would also like to thank all of the Federated Church members and friends who so graciously donated homemade lasagnas, financed the purchase of lasagnas, made salads and desserts, and brought garlic bread. We appreciate all who helped set up, clean up, and serve these dinners to those in our community. We were particularly blessed having a number of our church youth participate in these events.

We appreciate the many of you in the community who came to these luncheons. We served 600 meals, 289 in our Parish House and another 311 through our meals-to-go program. This has been a particularly meaningful experience for all of us, as this is one of our local outreach efforts. We look forward to having these luncheons again next winter, and again welcoming the many guests who stopped by this winter. We are so blessed to live in this community.
