KENDALL – Gary Crawford of the Kendall Lions Club strains a batch of spaghetti this afternoon. The Lions Club prepared about 250 spaghetti dinners. This year they were available for drive-through, take-out only.

Patrick Bolton had several pots of spaghetti going in the Fire Department’s kitchen next door the town hall.

The meals were served from 4 to 6 p.m. The club has managed to keep some of its fundraisers and activities going, making changes to keep people safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Today there wasn’t a dine-in option for the dinner.

The Lions Club also usually does a wagon ride near Halloween where kids can pick a pumpkin, and families can then have cider and donuts. This time the Lions set up four smaller pumpkin patches and kids could walk and pick their own pumpkin. There wasn’t a wagon ride or refreshments. Partyka Farms donated 200 pumpkins for that event.

Paul Gray and other Lions Club members work in the kitchen on getting the meals ready for the public.

The West Barre United Methodist Church also served an Election Day turkey dinner today. It also was served drive-through with take-outs only.
