The 89th annual St. Boniface Parish Thanksgiving Bazaar is just days away.
The event will be held this Thursday, November 28, at St. Boniface Gymnasium in Elgin.
Dating back to the 1920s, the event has brought families, friends and neighbors together to enjoy fine food and fellowship.
The traditional menu will feature turkey & dressing, original special recipe sausage, potatoes and gravy, sauerkraut & ribs, cranberry salad, jello salad, homemade pies & desserts, corn and dinner rolls.
The serving line will open up at 11 a.m. and continue til 3 p.m. There will be no evening meal served. Winners of the raffle drawing will be announced at 4 p.m.
The bazaar dates back to 1924 when the meal cost just 50 cents. While the price has risen some since those early years, one thing has remained the same — parish members working together for the good of the church and community.
Make plans now to attend!
Some will call it a hobby, some might call it an obsession. Whatever you decide to call it, the description will likely include at least one of these words: “beautiful”, “awesome”, “wow”.
It is the model of St. Boniface Catholic Church built by Bill Parks of Elkhorn, NE.
Parks grew up in the Rural St. John’s parish area and knows the special love that rural residents have for their home churches. He obviously shares those feelings as he has dedicated so much of his time working on the project, perfecting every little detail.
Over eight years ago, while living in Petersburg, Parks began working on his tribute to the St. Boniface church here in Elgin.
