Turkey dinner fundraiser is here once again

Published 12:45am Sunday, October 28, 2012

It’s October and once again it is time for the Ironton Catholic Schools largest fall fundraiser.

Each year, on the last Sunday of October, we hold our Annual Turkey Dinner in the St. Joseph Church Undercroft.

This year the dinner will be from 1 to 5:00 p.m. Sunday.

Many hours of preparation and hard work are contributed to help make our dinner successful. Over 2,000 dinners are cooked and served by volunteers.

Our carry-out dinners are a major part of this event. We also serve over 700 people, joining their family and friends for a delicious meal of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, rolls, cranberries, dessert and a beverage.

Dinner guests are seated at festively decorated tables and are served by students of our Ironton Catholic Schools. St. Lawrence Elementary students display their talents by providing the colorful centerpieces and wall décor.

In order to ensure success, parents in both schools give their time and help with the dinner.

We also have many volunteers who no longer have students in our schools, but generously give their time and talent to help us succeed.

Returning this year there will be a shopping event held in the St. Joseph High School gymnasium. Several vendors will be offering a wide range of products perfect for filling your upcoming shopping needs.

We will also be offering the traditional craft and bake sale. You may purchase chances for raffle items including a beautiful wreath donated by Weber’s Florist or a gift certificate donated by A Touch of Grace, along with others festive baskets.

We are tremendously grateful for all of our turkey dinner patrons whose names are listed on our placemats. We are also thankful to the many of you who come to visit us sharing in the fellowship and warmth of this wonderful meal.

Ironton is a great community and we are blessed each year with continued support.

Please come, bring your neighbors, family, and friends. We sincerely hope to see you there!
