Tickets are now available for the 2nd annual Taste of Norwalk United Methodist Church being spon- sored by the Missions Committee. Purchase tickets for yourself, family members and friends to enjoy some wonderful food while helping support needs in our community and abroad. Twenty-five guest chefs will be preparing a variety of dishes to be tasted during the event that is being held Sunday, Oct. 11 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the church. Tickets are available for $10 each from the church J office or from any Missions Committee member. Con- tact the church office or Doris Cose at 515-981-4584 for more information or tickets. The event is a fund raiser for the Missions Commit- tee and all proceeds from ticket sales will be used to further Missions Work, both within the Norwalk com- munity and outside. From last year's proceeds, funds were used to purchase diapers for the Norwalk Com- munity Baby Shower to assist local new Moms with newborn needs, help a church member finance a mis- sions trip to a Haiti orphanage and also help a group from the church travel to Kentucky for a Missions project to work on homes of local residents. The Bevington Garden Club met at the Lyons Hall in Martensdale on Septem- ber 16. Roll call was an- swered by our favorite fall activity: some of which were watching football games, watching the fall colors change, going through corn mazes, raking leaves, fall house and yard cleaning, and making apple pies. Interesting reports on Dill Weed and Thyme were reported on by Lola Hill and Nancy Meyer. Nancy Ferguson had a program on preserving food, primarily on canning. Canning dates back to Napoleon Bonaparte who offered a 12,000 franc reward to any- one who could develop a method of preserving large 1611 Sunset Dr. Norwalk 981-0836 [ i pen Tuesday thru Thursday and Sunday 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. Closed Monday TUES.- Ground Sirloin.

While can- ning is not necessarily cheaper than buying canned, dried or frozen food; the satisfaction of knowing exactly what is going into the jar and the ability to save some of the wonderful garden bounty makes it worthwhile.

Denise Loll presented mum plants for the front entrance of the Norwalk Care Center as part of the 2015 service project.

The supper was pre- pared using some of the various spices reported on throughout the year.
