Mmmm, Mmmm, Great Food at John Street Church Supper August 4
Event has passed
When the calendar says “August” we Mainers know the relaxed summer living will be changing to fall. Instead of shopping and cooking a meal, stay relaxed and bring your friends and relatives to the old-fashioned church supper at 5:30, August 4th the John Street United Methodist Church, 98 John Street, Camden. Diners will find home-baked beans and a wide variety of hot casseroles, including macaroni and cheese, corn and clam casseroles, American chop suey, and a variety of chicken or beef dishes. Salads range from fluffy orange or lemon jello to potato, coleslaw, spinach, oriental and garden varieties, freshly prepared and ready for you to serve yourself family style. Servers bring the food to the tables, and if a diner is looking for a particular dish, a server will scout other tables and deliver it to you.
Dessert will be a slice of homemade pie: banana cream, chocolate, pecan, raspberry, rhubarb, apple, cherry, blueberry and coconut or bread pudding, Many ” regulars” who come to the supper on the first Saturday of each month show up early to “beat the crowd” to seating. If several folks want to sit together, one person may purchase tickets for the party and hold seats at the “reserved seating only table.” Those who arrive early also have the best selection of pie, which they pick up on their way to the table. Serving starts at 5:30 after a “groaner” joke and a blessing. Then the lively conversations continue among friends and strangers until they are ready to head out for whatever activity they have planned for the rest of the evening.
The meal costs $9 for adults, $6 for children under age 13.
A portion of the proceeds supports the Camden Area Christian Food Pantry
