Harvestfest Dinner at Trinity this weekend

REED CITY -- Trinity Lutheran Church and School will host its annual Harvestfest Dinner from 4 to 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 19.

Harvestfest is hosted each year by the school and the Parent Teacher League families.

It is the largest fall fundraiser for the school.

This year's menu includes roast pork, mashed potatoes and gravy, squash, spaetzle, sauerkraut and sausage, meatballs, dinner rolls, apple crisp and pumpkin pie.

Some of the dishes are heritage recipes from members of the congregation, which have been served for years at this event, said hospitality director Lori Pruitt.

Costs for the dinner are: $9 for adults and children 11 and older; $7 for seniors 55 and older; $6 for children 5 to 10; $3 for children 3 to 5; and free for children 2 and under.

"This is an awesome meal," Pruitt said. "I dream about the pureed squash dish. It's that good."

The "Be a Blessing" Cash Mob will take place from 5 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 22, at Pompeii's.

TLCS has been sponsoring cash mobs for local businesses since 2017 as way to support local businesses and thank them for all they do for the community and for kids.

"This is a way for us to thank local businesses who support Trinity through donations for our annual auction, and the general community," Pruitt said.

To participate in the cash mob, all you have to do is show up during a specific window of time, buy food and say thanks, she said.

"We encourage our TLCS family to wear Trinity shirts to make us more visible," Pruitt added. "However, these are community-wide events and everyone is welcome."
