Fall supper tradition becomes takeout event

Rowletta provides fowl dinner in drive-thru fashion.

One of the few fall/fowl suppers in the Moose Jaw district this year was at the Rowletta Civic Centre northwest of Moose Jaw.
         

Originally the supper was supposed to be a sit down event but Covid-19 restrictions switched plans to a drive-through takeout supper.
         

The Rowletta Civic Centre Club sold 160 tickets for the supper of sausage, cabbage rolls, perogies and apple crisp.
         

“Thus far, [it] surpassed what we had expected,” said Bonnie Clubbe, one of the organizers. “We are quite happy.”
         

“It isn’t the same (as a sit down),” sighed one of the volunteers. “You gotta do what you gotta do.”
         

Proceeds from the supper are designated to pay for the recently installed concrete handicapped accessible entrance.
         

Among the few communities with a fowl supper, also a takeout dinner is Mortlach on Nov. 7.
         

Briercrest also had a takeout fowl supper.
