Despite the cold weather, about 100 people gathered in the basement of the church to celebrate the beginning of the Lenten season and enjoy good food and good company. Before guests arrived, volunteers were busy at work in the church’s kitchen preparing the meal and ensuring that the soups were hot and ready and the pies were sliced. Donna Westfall, Mickie Galajda, and Roma Vance were in charge of the preparations this year, taking over from Sue Carlisle who had organized the meals for so many years. “For us, it’s been reworking the table centerpieces and making sure we have the supplies we need,” said Westfall. “Mickie and I came down yesterday and made sure we had all the kitchen supplies we need. We’re starting to get things ready to go. People started bringing in soups by 8:30 or 9 a.m. this morning. Pies were brought in at 9 a.m. Our job is to make sure the soups get here and get them good and hot and ready to serve.” Westfall said another crew comes in at noon and continues serving and She-sheds becoming more popular in rural areas Page 02B Young agriculture professional group starts in Coshocton Page 05B Facts about farming in Coshocton County Page 10B The Beacon Positively Coshocton County Down on the Farm Inside!
