---- — GREENSBURG – For several years, the Greensburg Adult Center has held an annual fall dinner as one of the chief fundraisers for the center and the Thrive Alliance supplemental nutrition program for seniors.
Previously, the dinner was held in the first or second week of November and had a Thanksgiving theme. This year however, circumstances beyond the control of the organizers have led to moving the dinner to October and turkey will not be served.
The Fall Harvest Dinner will take place at the Greensburg Adult Center, located at 905 East Main Street, on Friday, October 25, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. This will be the seventh annual dinner for the center. The meal is open to the public and if large groups are planning to attend, it is recommended that a call be placed ahead of time so an appropriate table can be reserved.
The menu will consist of ham steak, twice baked mashed potatoes, green beans with bacon and onion, cranberry salad, yeast rolls, homemade pies, with the choice of tea, coffee or water. An adult meal will cost $8 and a children’s meal will be $3.50 for children ages 5 to 13. Children under the age of 5 will be free. To go orders will also be available at the same cost.
Greensburg Adult Center Health and Nutrition Coordinator Diana Robbins said the event usually serves 300 to 350 people and is a good time for everyone involved. Robbins said she hopes to see as many people this year. Normally, the event would be advertised on the center’s new electronic sign, but a broken piece is preventing the sign from being updated. It is still stuck on last week’s messages, but will be fixed as soon as the new piece arrives.
All of the proceeds from the Fall Harvest Dinner will be split between the Greensburg Adult Center for the senior’s activities and the Thrive Alliance program that provides supplemental nutrition for area seniors. In addition to the delicious home-cooked meal attendees will enjoy, there will be a variety of door prizes donated by area businesses and a 50/50 drawing.
