The Waverly United Methodist Church, 105 Church St., with its vision to “transform the world, one meal at a time,” is preparing for the 47th Annual Bull Roast, scheduled for 1 to 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 5, and these are just some of the items on the shopping list.
Each year, the event serves approximately 500 meals comprised of open-pit roast beef, parsleyed potatoes, baked beans, corn on the cob, tomatoes, rolls, dessert and a beverage. In order to prepare for this feast, volunteers will wash and cut the potatoes and tomatoes, cook countless rounds of beef over an open fire, husk and boil the ears of corn and prepare various types of desserts, which are plated in advance of the meal.
The event will be held rain or shine and meals may be purchased for dine in or take out.
The cost is $14 for adults and $6 for children age 9 and younger. Ten percent of all proceeds will benefit mission projects at the church.
For more information or to volunteer, contact Holly Gilpin at 570-561-3371.
