For the  past 91 years, every October, St. Andrew’s United Church of Christ in Dexter has been families who flock to the church for the annual sauerkraut supper.

This year's dinner is slated for Oct. 18.

Roast pork, sauerkraut, homemade knoeffles (German-style pasta pronounced “nifflees"), mashed potatoes, pickled beets and pies, make up the meal.

All dishes are made at the church, and some of the workers are third and fourth generation in this annual event.

Good eating is following in the German tradition of the church founders, 129 years ago in October.

Serving begins at 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 18, with carry-outs available.

A country store is also part of the event, featuring a variety of crafts and homemade baked goods.

Tickets can be reserved through the church office by calling 734-426-8610 Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Tickets can also be purchased at the Dexter Pharmacy or Hearts and Flowers, but they must be purchased in advance, by Oct. 17. The price is $10 for adults; children 5-12, $5; and 4 and under free.

I participated in the Sauerkraut Supper when my friend, Rev. John Sunburn, was pastor at St. Andrews in the 1980's. It was quite an affair. Sue
