Our apologies to the Methodists.
Last week we reported they were
to give a chicken supper in the lo
cal school lunch room, on Friday
evening, February 10th. , We were
in error. The supper is to be Friday
evening February 17th and they will
serve turkey instead of chicken. We
made reference to the "Methodist
chicken" but believe they do as
good a job on turkeys as chickens.
So we'll call this an old fashioned
"Methodist Turkey" supper. Lets
all go out and gobble up the turkeys
and do our part towards the build
ing program. Tickets are now on
