Celebrated Our 3rd Anniversary by Serving 595 Meals!!!

Tuesday, October 16th marked three years for Third Tuesday Suppers (TTS)…hard to believe!  During our celebration, we served 595 meals!  Our crowd started slower–but then became steady after 5:15pm.  In November, we usually notice that guests start coming earlier after the clock changes and it is darker earlier.

The chicken and broccoli dish always gets rave reviews! Big kudos to our kitchen! No small task to keep food hot, fresh and moving out. Gratefully, we ALWAYS have enough!  Did you know that our dessert table was home to nearly 1100 desserts this month? Those cupcakes and treats were a wonderful patchwork quilt of sweets and we are thankful for all our volunteer bakers!

And, the Kids Corner was hopping all night with children making friendship bracelets!

This is a 100% volunteer driven event.  After a volunteer serves this event for eight months or so, they are awarded a special TTS apron. This month three more steadfast volunteers were recognized for their heartfelt impact to this service.  FYI…we have awarded over 25 aprons throughout the years!  Yet another example of the dedication that surrounds TTS!  It is a pleasure working with all the people that come out to help, each and every month!

And now we move on feet firmly planted into Year Four!  We are welcoming new folks each month–so many more with health concerns and limitations, making this serving opportunity that much more important and impactful!

Rest up for November…last year we set a guest record for our Thanksgiving Supper!

If you have not joined us before, what are you waiting for?  ALL ARE WELCOME AT OUR TABLE…We hope to see you there!

Celebrating Our Third Anniversary at the Free Community Third Tuesday Suppers!

“As long as the community keeps coming to the suppers, we will keep serving,” says Beth Kucera, one of the supper organizers. “The positive response to our suppers has overwhelmed us”, she added. “Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would be serving 600 plus dinners each month. This meal ministry has become part of the fabric of our church, she said.
