The event will be using both the east and west parking lots as drive-thru areas to service the guests faster. Traffic will flow into the parking lot from Clendening Road, then guests will pay and order suppers at a pay booth and then proceed to the double doors of Joshua Hall to pick up their suppers, then finally, exit back onto Clendening Rd. Traffic attendants will be present and assisting with the traffic flow.
Typically, the event serves 1,400-1,500 meals each year. This supper event started in 1941 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and has continued annually ever since. This year marks the 80th Sausage/Sauerkraut Supper event. Initially, the meat came from the butchering of a one young pig and has grown to the purchasing of 1,200 pounds of pork. The sausage consists of pork, natural casings and seasonings of sage, sea salt, black pepper, and commercial pork sausage seasoning. The rest of the supper items: sauerkraut, potatoes, gravy, beans, applesauce, and pies are all homemade.
Our Savior Lutheran Church wishes to thank the Gladwin County residents and visitors to the community for their many years of patronage and they hope everyone enjoys their meals once again this year.
