SCRIBA – The second Tuesday of November not only brings Election Day but also the return of the Election Day Dinner at The United Baptist Church of Scriba.
On November 6 the church will feature its famous ham and scalloped potato dinner that has become a popular tradition for both the church and the community.
In addition to the above, the dinner will include butternut squash, homemade applesauce, Harvard beets, various jello salads and rolls.
Plenty of homemade desserts will be available.
We will start serving at 4 p.m. and go to 6 p.m.
Cost is $10 for adults, $5 for ages 6-12, and 5 and younger will eat for free.
For those looking forward to dinner in the comfort of your own home, take outs are available. Give us a call before 3 p.m. at 343-8542 and we’ll have the meals ready when you get there.
In the past, the church held its Election Day Dinner to help supplement its support of various outreaches in the community and around the world.
Support for multiple orphanages in Kenya, India and Afghanistan is provided through the efforts of the Foundation Stone Ministries.
Operation Christmas Child is another program that is currently moving forward in an effort to supply needy children with school supplies, hygiene items and other necessities.
The church and its members also support local endeavors such as the Pregnancy Care Center in Oswego, the Scriba Christmas Project and our own Food Pantry.
This year, 100% of the proceeds from the dinner will go to the “Blessings in a Backpack” program supplying 75 hungry kids in the Mexico School District with food 38 weekends during the school year.
Better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to the success of this program.
Special thanks go to Appledale Orchards for donating the apples for the applesauce and to John Dunsmoor Farms for donating the potatoes for the event.
We would also like to thank an anonymous donor for giving us a bushel of butternut squash for the event.
We are located at 5111 State Route 104 East (four miles east of Oswego, just west of County Route 29, right next door to Dahl’s Diner.)
So, come on out for dinner on your way to voting or after you’re done. Do your civic duty and then reward yourself with a fine community dinner.
