WORTHINGTON — American Lutheran Church, 915 Winifred St., Worthington, is hosting a Scandinavian specialties food sale in the church’s fellowship hall on Sunday, Oct. 9 from 9 to 10:15 a.m., and from 11:15 a.m. until sold out.

The CandleLighting is especially for families in Southwest Minnesota to honor the memories of their daughters, sons, brothers, sisters, or grandchildren, who have died at any age, at any time, from any cause.
The family-friendly events are planned from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at most locations. People are encouraged to stop by the businesses and enjoy the festive happenings.
A free jewelry making class will be offered for individuals ages 16 and older.

Two Scandinavian favorites, meatballs at $8 per quart and lefse at $8 per 18 pieces will be sold as carry-out. A bake sale will feature sandbakkels, rosettes and krumkake.

A silent auction will feature rice pudding, rommegrot and peppernuts to the highest bidder. High bidders will be contacted at the end of October.

Proceeds from the sale will support the ministries of the Lutheran Women’s organization.

“Right now our number for registered children in Nobles County is around 700,” Harrington said of the local Toys for Tots campaign. “Our goal is to provide three toys per child, so if we can get our toy count up to 2,500, that would be great.”
Adults and children alike are welcome to drop by and make a craft during that time, but should register in advance by calling (507) 295-5340 to register, as space and supplies are limited.
