Hudson churches, volunteers serve a Thanksgiving feast
Hudson Outreach Meals for Everyone served its annual Thanksgiving feast Thursday evening, Nov. 19.
Pete and Laura Foster, owners of Barker’s Bar & Grill and San Pedro Café, provided the roast turkey, stuffing and gravy -- as they have done for each of feasts over the past 10 years.
Chuck Lewis supervised the preparation of the rest of the dinner assisted by his wife, Helen, and Bob Schultz, Joanne Campbell and Greta Schaffer.
Mark Gherty rounded up fellow members of the Hudson Daybreak Rotary to serve as wait staff and the clean-up crew.
According to Ruth Lewis, 149 people signed the guest list, but that didn’t include many of the volunteers who helped put on the dinner.
Hudson Outreach Meals for Everyone are sponsored by nine Hudson churches that provide the money to purchase groceries and the volunteers to prepare and serve the food. The churches are: Bethel Lutheran, Beth Immanuel, Faith Community, HillCity, Mount Zion Lutheran, St. Patrick Catholic, St. Paul’s Episcopal and Trinity Lutheran.
The meals are served the first and third Thursdays of the month at 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m. in the basement dining hall of Bethel Lutheran Church, 920 Third St.
