The month of February started off with the Perry Lions Club annual BRR Ride breakfast. They always serve scrambled eggs with ham and St. Pat’s cinnamon rolls. Funds raised go to community projects.
Later that evening was the Earlham Peace Lutheran Church soup supper. This is always held during the time of the Super Bowl, and diners are asked to vote for their favorite Super Bowl team. I voted for the Kansas City Chiefs, who did happen to win this year’s championship game. Funds raised are for missions and church needs.
The next dinner was Saturday, Feb. 8 at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Perry, where a lasagna dinner was served. It was very good. Monies were again raised for missions and church needs.
On the second Wednesday of the month, which was Feb. 12, the Heartland Church of Christ served their community dinner, which consisted of chilli. It was very good.
On Saturday, Feb. 21 was the spaghetti dinner at the Woodward American Legion Hall. Funds raised were for community events and projects.
I headed to the Dexter UMC the next day for pork chops with dressing. Monies raised are used for mission and church needs.
Friday, Feb. 28 brought the first Perry Knights of Columbus fish fry at St. Patrick’s Catholic School. Monies raised support Knights events and projects.
The Perry Kiwanis 67th annual Pancake Day was Saturday, Feb. 29. This was held at the McCreary Community Building. Funds raised are for community needs.
There were a few more dinners in March, which I shall describe in a future article, and then, as Porky Pig says, it will be “That’s all, Folks!”
