A bean dinner with a sure-to-be musical afterparty took over the Thorne community centre on Friday night, as more than 100 people filled the hall for the meal.
The Thorne Community Recreation Association welcomed five cooks with various recipes for beans, plus ham, hot dogs and tons more sides and desserts, for the community dinner on March 9.
Norma Charette, the TCRA’s kitchen manager, said the group was serving up around 20 lbs. of beans, two hams and six dozen hot dogs in order to keep everyone well-stuffed and happy this year.
“[We’ve] only once ran out of meat,” said Charette, looking back on their community meals. “The rest of the time we’ve had ample food.”
The meals are run by the group but see volunteers from the community continuously step up to volunteer their time to prepare various foods. Charette said she was lucky to count on five individuals for their bean-making skills, proving a hit, as always, at their gatherings.
