First United Church of Christ to Hold Tailgate To Go
October 15, 2020
After much discussion concerning the coronavirus pandemic and the protection and safety of our members and guests, the First United Church of Christ has regretfully decided not to host our annual turkey, ham and meatball dinner, craft and bake sale, and basket raffle this November. Instead, we are excited to announce our first Tailgate To Go as a way to safely celebrate our community spirit and support the ministries of our church.
“Our congregation always loves bringing people together for great food and fellowship at the Church Dinner,” says Pastor Laura Kolden. “While it was the right decision, it was so disappointing to have to cancel this year. We thought a Tailgate To Go on a Packers game day would be a fun way to raise people’s spirits, and offer a delicious picnic meal to take home and enjoy. While we can’t sit down at the same table, we can still enjoy the fellowship of our community.”
The First UCC Tailgate To Go will be held on Sunday, October 18th, from 11:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. You’ll have plenty of time to grab a meal to go and get set for the Packers Game at 3:25 p.m.! Menu options will be: $5 Brat Meal Deal (brat, chips, cookie, bottle of water, condiments), $5 hot dog meal (2 hot dogs, chips, cookie, bottle of water, condiments). Individual brats for $3 and hot dogs for $1.
This is a drive-through event. Start at the Depot (corner of Pearl Street and Hwy. 92) by entering its parking lot from Pearl St. Orders and payment will be taken there, and then you’ll proceed to pick up the meals to go at the main entrance to First UCC on Church Street. There will be signs to direct you. We will follow Public Health Guidelines for the safety of our volunteers and guests. A request in the interest of the safety of all, is that our guests wear masks as they place their orders and pick up their food.
Pam Kelly, the Committee Chair, adds, “Our annual Church Dinner has been a major fundraiser over the years and we are grateful for the area communities’ support and fellowship in the past. We will miss the camaraderie and fellowship time in preparing and serving the dinner and look forward to saying hello from a distance at our Tailgate To Go.”
