Women’s salad luncheon helps missions program
The success of Asbury United Methodist Church’s local and global mission program is fed partly by people feeding diners in Columbus.
That happens at the church women’s annual salad luncheon and bazaar from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at the church, 1751 27th St. The event, also featuring a variety of baked goods and crafts, raised $4,935 last year, according to organizers.
“We did a very good job, good enough to run out of food,” said Dawn Hauck, a member of the event’s publicity committee. “So, people better plan on arriving early.”
This year, the luncheon will include more than 15 salads, plus homemade cakes and pies. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased at the church office until the day before the event. The bazaar opens at 9:30 a.m., and lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Information and tickets: 372-4555.
