The Friend newspaper reports that the Dorchester Community Foundation Fund (DCFF) is planning its popular grilled chicken luncheon and hamburger feed for today, Nov. 13, at the Dorchester Legion and Community Hall from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The story points out that "with the cemetery directory and Dorchester welcome sign projects so close to completion, the foundation has targeted a splash pad as the next project. A splash pad is a small scale water park without a pool, but includes several water fountain or spray type features to help cool anyone off on those hot summer days. There are no lifeguard expenses, and it shuts off automatically when there is no activity. Splash pads are a popular, less expensive way for adding summer fun."
"With the lingering harvest, the dinners can be prepared to go so the field crew can keep working. Delivery will also be offered in town to those that may not be able to make it downtown. The grilled chicken dinner includes your choice of mashed potatoes and gravy, potato salad or chips; dinner salad; baked beans; roll; and drink. The hamburger dinner will include the same options, and a hamburger and chips are also available for youth or those with smaller appetites. All meals are available with a free-will donation."
"Donations for the current and future improvements by the DCFF are accepted anytime, made payable to the Dorchester Foundation and mailed to: Peg Bergmeyer, 101 Washington Ave., Dorchester, NE 68343; or Dale Hayek, 652 County Road 1200, Dorchester, NE 68343."
The DCFF is a non-profit subsidiary of the Nebraska Community Foundation so all donations are tax deductible.
