The first Waverly United Methodist Church Labor Day Bull Roast was started by the Menâ??s Group of the church, in 1969. Now a whole church effort, it is a tradition expected and supported by the community and the area.

This year, the roast will be held on Monday, September 3 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Waverly United Methodist Church, 105 Church St. Tickets are $12.50 for and $6 for children under 10.

The fire will be started around 5:30 a.m. and when all is said and done, 400 pounds of charcoal will be used to cook 600 pounds of beef. 900 ears of corn will be shucked and cooked and 200 pounds of potatoes will be used. And last, but not least, 100 pies, cakes, and brownies, mostly made by members of the church, will be served.

The complete menu is: Slow roasted beef, parsley potatoes, corn on the cob, homemade baked beans, fresh sliced tomatoes, applesauce, rolls, dessert and beverage.

In 2011, they supported the following missions:
Flood victims in Plymouth, Pa, Abington Ecumenical Food Pantry, St. Francis of Assisi Kitchen, Womenâ??s Resource Center, Tornado victims in Joplin, Mo., Henderson Settlement, Kentucky, Rose Bud Indian Reservation, South Dakota. And they purchased coats, hats, gloves for less fortunate children in the Abington Heights School District.
