October brings to mind pumpkins, autumn leaves, scarecrows, and warm turkey casserole at the Fall Fest dinner and silent auction at Disciples United Methodist church in Mt. Morris. This year’s event is Friday, Oct. 25 from 3-7 p.m.
This long standing tradition in Mt. Morris started in the 1930s with the women of the church holding a day long bazaar and serving a full turkey dinner.
Today the church women serve their “famous turkey casserole”family style with all the trimmings of cranberry salad, rolls, relishes and diner’s choice of homemade pie.
The dinner is served from 4:30-7 p.m. adults are $10, children 6-12 are $5 and under 5 or over 99 are free.
Carry out dinners are also available for an additional 50 cents. For questions 815-734-4853 or 815-631-0075.
Disciples UMC is located at the west edge of Mt. Morris, corner of Illinois 64 and Maple Street.
