Harvest Dinner

Harvest Dinner Enjoyed by All


Monroe’s United Methodist Church held its Harvest Dinner recently to celebrate the coming of fall and to support their ministries and missions. Chairing the event was Rose Aiello with lots of help from the parishioners of the church who kept busy in the kitchen and manned the serving tables.

Area musicians from White House Productions performed throughout the evening with country  and soft rock renditions. On stage were That Virginia, Zach Anderson, Steph Serenita and Randy Newbury of Forget Paris.

Popular on the menu were baked potatoes stuffed with cheese and sour cream,  pulled pork sandwiches and slices of apple crumb pie, a signature dessert at the church’s functions.
