The parishioners of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Webb City continued the 65-year tradition of sponsoring a Turkey Dinner for southwest Missouri over the weekend of Nov. 1-2. The dinner is a major fundraiser for the church and an even larger social gathering for the local community.
Under the direction of Will and Cheryl Roderique, the 65th annual event was a huge success with over 2,000 dinners served. Sacred Heart provided a cafeteria-style sit-down dinner as well as take-out meals for local businesses and elderly residents. In addition, a country store and silent auction allowed patrons the opportunity to bring home nice gifts for the holidays.
Members of the parish cooked, served, and cleaned for the event.
