According to George Thomson, they plan to serve a lasagna dinner. The cost will be $15 per person or whatever generous donation the diner wishes to make. “This is sort of an ‘eat so others can eat’ affair to help the struggling people in the Ukraine”, noted Thomson.

The lasagna will come in several sorts of varieties to satisfy the palates of everyone. They will include meat-filled, vegetarian, and gluten free lasagna dishes. Complementing the main course will be salads, breads, and desserts. Take-out meals may be picked up at the church between 5-5:30 p.m. while in-church dining will be available from 5:30-7 p.m.

Pre-orders for take-out meals can be made by call 802-228-6275 or emailing Thomson131VT@gmail.com.

General donations are also appreciated. They may be made at the Ludlow Rotary Club’s website, portal.clubrunner.ca/2939, or mailed to Ludlow Rotary, PO Box 216, Ludlow, VT 05149.  Such donations are tax-deductible.

Thomson added that “We genuinely hope we can support the desperate needs of the folks in the Ukraine who are hungry and suffering the personal and family deprivations resulting from this terrible invasion. So let’s eat so others can eat!”
