Herscher Christian Labor Day Chicken Dinner Hosts
Herscher Christian Church takes it's turn in 2008 as hosts of the Herscher Labor Day BBQ Chicken Dinners, providing the meal, preparations, both carry-out and Dine-In meals served in the Herscher High School Cafeteria. The preparation begins a few weeks before the event, the event day preparation begins in the early morning, and on Labor Day food preparation begins well before the 10 am Parade. Meal is served beginning immediately following the end of the parade. Hosting the Labor Day Dinners is Rotated with the Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist and Christian churches of the Herscher Counsel of Churches on a rotating basis, so each congregation has a turn once every 4 years. Approximately 1100 meals were served in 2008. This year, profits from the Dinner were donated to local Benevolence needs in the community and to Missions supported by H.C.C.
