88th Annual Thanksgiving Bazaar is Thursday

November 21, 2012 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Some things get better with time.
The 88th annual St. Boniface Parish Thanksgiving Bazaar will be held this Thursday, Nov. 22.
The event has been bringing families together, generation after generation, dating back to the 1920s. Much remains the same, just as it was years ago. To be served up Thanksgiving Day will be turkey & dressing, original special recipe sausage, potatoes and gravy, sauerkraut & ribs, cranberry salad, jello salad, homemade pies & desserts, corn and dinner rolls. Most, if not all the food, will be prepared by parishioners. Some prepare turkeys, others do potatoes, and still more will make homemade pies to serve.
One thing which will be different this year is that there will be no evening meal served. The serving line will open up at 11 a.m. and continue until 3 p.m. Then, one hour later at 4 p.m., the winners of the raffle drawing will be announced. The drawing is one of the highlights of the event.
New this year, will be an event sponsored by the local chapter of the Knights of Columbus. Beginning at 5 p.m. and continuing till 10 p.m. there will be bingo and other activities for the public to partake in at the K.C. Hall.
History
The first bazaar was held in 1924. Back then the cost for a plate of food was just 50 cents. Beginning in 1936, the bazaar expanded to two meals and, following bazaar activities a dance was held in the school hall. The event has continued to evolve. But one thing has remained a constant for 88 years, that being parish members working together for the good of the church and the community.
See ya there!
