NEWS ROUNDUP: Soup Luncheon, Polka Party Set For Jan. 22
Lots of things currently trending in the Dorchester area...
* Dorchester Methodist Church Soup Luncheon Is Jan. 22: Next Sunday, Jan. 22, will bring the Dorchester United Methodist Church's annual soup and sandwich luncheon. The ladies will be serving from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. On the menu will be chicken noodle soup, chili, clam chowder and liver dumpling soup, along with sandwiches, relishes and many desserts. The entertainment will be provided by Jim Sprague. Everyone is welcome.
* Polka At Dorchester Legion Hall On Jan. 22: Also on next Sunday, Jan. 22, Dorchester's Legion Hall will be rocking -- or perhaps we should say polka-ing. The Brad Husak Combo will be playing from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. Covered dish dinner will be served. Again, everyone is welcome! The cover is only $5.
* Dorchester Girls Basketball Has Won Last 7 Of 8 Games: With the exception of their loss last week at Friend, the DHS girls basketball team is on a notable surge. The Class D-2 Lady Longhorns have won the last seven of eight ball games, handily defeating High Plains, East Butler and Sterling in recent days. Under the tutelage of head coach and Dorchester alum Brandon Bruha, DHS' record now stands at 8-5 overall. Up this week are two Class C-2 schools -- Cross County (at DHS on Tuesday) and Shelby-Rising City in an away contest. (Click here for the York News-Times story on DHS' win over High Plains.
