Zion United fills for annual sausage supper

By Carol Spicer.

For many, the holiday season started with the annual sausage supper at Zion United Church at Womack on Saturday, Nov. 30, when the community, families from near and far, and friends gathered in the holiday spirit. After 51 years of planning, organizing, and orchestrating the annual Zion United Church Sausage Supper, it seems that it would be easy; however, when one takes into consideration the last week of preparations the task seems insurmountable.

Hard Core Santas

By Simone Wichers-Voss.

Why would they want to endure frozen hands, feet and faces just for a ride from McGregor to Meridian? “We do this every year, for the past five years,” Tiffany said. “And nothing will stop us. It’s all for the kids; to help those that can’t help themselves.”
