Hello again, dinner fans, hungry for the May 2019 report!
There were not as many dinners as last month. If you know of any type of breakfast, dinner or ice cream social coming up, please let me know. I know that Rippey people like to see pictures of Rippey events.
The month of May started with the Bouton Breakfast on the first Saturday. The regular breakfast items were served and, as stated many times before, my favorite is the biscuits and gravy. I have not seen Gale Phillips working this station for a while.
Noon on that same Saturday was a benefit dinner for Jennifer Lechuga hosted by Tyson employees at the Latino Assembly of God Church on Second Street. A traditional Latino dinner was served, with lots of food.
Jennifer, a long time IBP/Tyson employee, recently suffered some medical issues. I hear that she is on the way to recovery. I have know Jennifer since 1997, when we were in the Jaycees.
On Sunday, May 5, the Rippey United Methodist Church held their annual Women at the Well fundraising breakfast, with eggs, pancakes and sausage. Women at the Well is a ministry at the women’s prison in Mitchellville. They help these women while they are in prison and help them to prepare them for release.
On Saturday, May 19, there was a benefit for David Garnes held at the Crossroads Church north of Perry. A fire destroyed David’s automotive shop and most of his tools. Funds raised were to help with the recovery and getting started again. I visited with David, and fortunately the house was not affected and no one was injured.
On Memorial Day there were two options. The Rippey United Methodist Church held their annual dinner after the service at the cemetery, with ham balls and a lot of salads and desserts. The Grand Junction Presbyterian Church also had their annual Memorial Day ham ball dinner. Both dinners were raising funds for church needs.
To end the month, I dined on beef burgers at the Woodward Christian Church. Madonna Rickles always calls me to tell me about their dinners. Funds raised are for missions. They will also be having a ham ball dinner in November and a soup dinner in February. This dinner was held in conjunction with Friends and Neighbor Days held this weekend in Woodward.
Deb, the Rippey United Methodist Church will hold an ice cream social on Sunday, June 9 from 4-7 p.m. This is the the only function that I know of going in June. See you next month!
