LUTEFISK MISSION DINNER SUMMARY
A big thank you to everyone who was involved with our 2019 Lutefisk dinner. The preparation starts in August, goes through September and most of October. This year, again, we had dedicated people who participated in most of the preparations. We all appreciate the time and effort of all those that were involved. We also thank the members and friends of Vermont, who show up that day to help with our setup and meal. Our dinner brings generations of families together while providing a meal that we hear is “best in the area.” Thank you!!!!!
This year our Lutefisk dinner sold out! We served over 1000 people, including our valuable workers. We will have a full report at the annual meeting. Our Income with tickets, food sales and donations exceeded $19,000. A very successful dinner. Our expenses were around $9,000. Again, we heard ours is the best in the area!!!! Thank you to all that were involved.
