SCRIBA - The first Tuesday of November not only brings Election Day but also the Election Day “take out” dinner at The United Baptist Church of Scriba. On Nov. 2 the church will serve a ham and scalloped potato dinner which will include butternut squash, a homemade dessert and a dinner roll.
Dinners will be served from 4-6 p.m. Cost is $10 per dinner with a reduced price of $5 for all veterans. Only 140 take out dinners will be available this year. So, call or text Carla at (315-416-6116) ASAP to reserve a meal. Last year they sold out prior to the event. Follow parking lot attendants directions, stay in a vehicle and dinners will be delivered.
In the past, the church held its Election Day dinner to help supplement its support of various outreaches in the community and around the world. Support for multiple orphanages in Kenya and India is provided through the efforts of the Foundation Stone Ministries. The church and its members also support local endeavors such as Oswego County Opportunities, The Oswego County Family Resource Centers, Ontario Bible Camp, Syracuse Teen & Adult Challenge and the Scriba Christmas Project.
This year, 100% of the proceeds from the dinner will go to the “Blessings in a Backpack” program supplying approximately 100 hungry kids in the Mexico Central School District with food 38 weekends during the school year. Better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to the success of this program.
Mexico Tops Friendly Market donated the dinner rolls for the event.
The church is located at 5111 State Route 104 east (four miles east of Oswego, just west of County Route 29, right next door to Dahl’s Diner.) The church phone number is 315-343-8542.
