Each year members of the Church Women United of Glendale seem to outdo themselves in presenting their “Meals on Wheels” salad bar luncheon at the First United Methodist Church. They’ve had plenty of practice. July 26 marked their 34th year of lunches, with proceeds going to the Glendale Salvation Army.
Co-chairmen Karil Drake and Evelyn Horigan guided volunteers representing several churches in Glendale, including Salem Lutheran and Incarnation. The tasks on tap included cooking, serving and clean-up for more than 250 hungry luncheon guests. At $8 a ticket, you couldn’t go wrong. Add $5 dollars to that if you wanted to take a second lunch home.
All had their choice of meat salads, deviled eggs (always a favorite), fruit salads and bread. Each year more restaurants make food contributions. This year’s participating restaurants included Damon’s Steakhouse, Don Cuco’s, Marie Callender’s and Shakers.
