MANGE TAKK (many thanks) to everyone who volunteered their time to make this year’s dinner a success. It was a great day for food and fellowship and together we served 2,012 meals to our guests and workers.
Proceeds of $23,600 from the dinner will be distributed to the Southeastern Minnesota Synod of the ELCA for mission support. In addition, the bake sale proceeds of $8,100 will be used to fund programs within our congregation and offset maintenance projects.
A special thank you to those who contributed their requested household donation; 46% of the households on our membership roster contributed. Monetary donations are still being accepted if you have not fulfilled your household donation (please designate “Lutefisk Dinner” on your contribution). More details on contributions from the congregation are below
Mark your calendars now so you will be available to enjoy the experience of volunteering for next year’s dinner on Thursday, October 24, 2019.
