It was pasta night at United Methodist Church (UMC) last Thursday as parishioners and volunteers served a community supper to an estimated 80 Hermann residents. The last-Thursday-of-the-month event draws rave reviews from diners as meals are either delivered to shut-ins or residents that enjoy a good meal and community fellowship in the church recreational hall. Pasta shells filled with ricotta and spinach (for meatless pasta) or ground beef, sausage, ricotta and mozzarella, glistened with tomato sauce before baking in the church’s ovens.
Carol Pinkerton was this month’s supper organizer. She said they served around 260 filled pasta shells, including dessert. Lemonade and iced tea were served to sit-down diners.
UMC Pastor Beth Duckworth says the suppers are just one way the church can support the community, and what better way, than to do it with a sit-down supper, where community members can catch up on the news? The suppers are held at the church—serving starts at 4:30 p.m. and continues until 6 p.m. Deliveries to shut-ins require reservations. Call 486-2651 for more information.
