The 2019 Cooksville Lutheran Church Autumn Fest is almost here,
October 13th. There will be activities for everybody, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.. Come and eat a home-cooked meal, listen to some live music and have fun!
The event will begin with worship and communion at 10:00 a.m. with Pastor Karla Brekke presiding. The following activities will begin on the Church grounds at 11:30 a.m.: judging of the BBQ pork loin cook-off; a bake sale featuring lefse, Norwegian treats, and other baked goods; and a themed-basket silent auction. The main feature of the themed Silent Auction will be a colorful quilt, made of batik fabric, 5’x5’.
At noon, an adult and child’s meal will be served. The main meal will be a barbecue pork loin dinner or a sloppy joe sandwich, served with cheesy potatoes, baked beans, homemade pie, and a drink. The child’s meal will consist of a hot dog, chips, a bar or cookie, and a drink. Both meals will be served until gone, in a fully handicapped accessible church.
One new feature this year will be the Old Fashioned Pie Contest. If you want to register, bring your pie/s to the Church between 12-1 p.m. Judging of the pies will follow at 1:30 p.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to buy one pie, or more, beginning at 2:00 p.m., thanks to the services of Dean George Auction.
Music and children’s activities, and the sale of 50/50 raffle tickets, will be ongoing during the afternoon. Mike and Jamie McCloskey will play their unique blend of acoustic swing blues and country music from noon-2 p.m. There will be a pumpkin decorating contest, bean-bag toss, and pumpkin bowling for children. The drawing time for the 50-50 raffle will be at 3:00 p.m. The winner will need to be present to win, as there will only be one winner.
