This year's Fish Boil again supports the fine work of the Orphan Grain Train. A good amount of fellowship with a heaped helping of delicious food was held on Sunday, July 10, 2016 around the mid-day eating hour and concluded at roughly 1:00 p.m. The fish dinners were served in the Kramer Community Center just down the road from St. John Lutheran Church.
The continued success of this annual event sustained its momentum in 2016 by conjoining 31 Volunteers, placing 140 volunteer hours in preparation, service and cleanup time. The 1 1/2 hours in which the event took place raised $1,077 with an additional $250 from Thrivent. Used clothing was also collected during the event. In total, 76 individuals were served.
The fellowship at St. John Lutheran Church held the annual "Fish Boil" at Kramer Hall on Sunday, July 12, 2015. Serving began at 11:30 a.m. and was enjoyed until about 1:00 p.m. The event was sponsored by the St. John and spearheaded by the congregational elders.
All proceeds were collected from a free-will offering dedicated to, "Orphan Grain Train". Funds raised are used for general operations, shipping & supplies, maintenance, utilities and insurance for OGT.
If you missed this years feast, please join us at our fish feed next year. Not only can you enjoy a tasty meal, but you will have an opportunity to share in the ministry of giving and caring for many of God's children who are in great need.
