Bounty of meals for good causes means you needn't go hungry


March 14, 1996|By Judy Reilly | Judy Reilly,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

NORTHWEST Carroll residents will have no need to cook for days. They can follow their appetites to fire halls, churches and schools for the mouth-watering breakfasts, lunches and suppers that have become rites of spring. All proceeds from these meals benefit worthy causes, so try to attend at least one meal.

Taneytown Lions Club members are donning their chef's hats Saturday for another all-you-can-eat country breakfast. The Lions play hosts at these breakfasts twice a year, so if you miss this one, you'll have to wait until November for the hot cakes, sausage, eggs and other breakfast items they take pride in cooking from scratch.

I took my hungry teen-age daughter to this event last spring, and the good folks in the Lions organization didn't flinch when she returned to the serving line for the fourth time. I didn't have to feed her the rest of the day.

Breakfast begins at 5 a.m. at the Carnival Grounds Activities Building at Memorial Park in Taneytown. The cost is $4.50 for adults, $2.25 for children ages 6 to 12, and free for youngsters under 6.

A raffle and a bake table are part of the event. All proceeds benefit Lions' local, state and national projects. Information: 751-1227.

Also Saturday, the Ladies Auxiliary, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8806 in Union Bridge will be cooking for a crowd. Members will serve a turkey and oyster smorgasbord at the post hall on Penrose Street.

The menu includes fried oysters and turkey with dressing and sauerkraut, Yankee pot pie (a gravy with crackers) and desserts. Everything is made from scratch; about 10 women work all day putting food on the table. The event is in its 26th year. Dinner is served beginning at 4 p.m. and lasts until 8 p.m. Cost is $8.50 for adults, $4 for children and free to youngsters under age 6. Information: 775-2160.

After the Lions breakfast and before the VFW supper, you might want to stroll to the Union Bridge fire hall for a spring mart, a craft show featuring 40 vendors as well as homemade food.

The event is held at the fire hall on Locust Street. The hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

If it's spaghetti you're craving, head over to St. Paul's United Methodist Church in New Windsor on March 23, when the New Windsor Youth Cluster puts on a spaghetti dinner, complete with salad, bread and dessert.

The event is held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Cost is $4.50 for adults, $3 for children ages 7 to 15, and free for children under age 6.

The youth from this ministry attend area Methodist churches. They're collaborating on a unique sauce for the event. Information: 848-0705.

St. Luke's Lutheran Church also is cooking spaghetti at its Helping Hands supper from 12: 30 p.m. to 2: 30 p.m. March 24.

The cost is $4.50 for adults, $2.25 for children ages 6 to 12. Proceeds will go toward the purchase of medical equipment for a member in need. Information: 635-6177.
