Daily Herald report

It's been three years since the free Third Tuesday Supper was started at the United Methodist Church of Geneva, and the number of guests just keeps growing, says Beth Kucera, one of the supper's organizers.

"As long as the community keeps coming to the suppers, we will keep serving," Kucera said. "The positive response to our suppers has overwhelmed us.

"Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would be serving 600-plus dinners each month. This meal ministry has become part of the fabric of our church," she said.

The Third Tuesday Supper will celebrate its "Third Anniversary Supper" from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at the United Methodist Church of Geneva, 211 Hamilton St.

The church is continuing its free, no-reservations-needed meal in the second floor dining hall. Next week's special menu includes the signature meal of Gayle's famous sautéed chicken breast, mashed potatoes, hot vegetable du jour, Caesar salad, hot rolls and the homemade dessert buffet. Hot dogs and chips are available as an alternative meal.

Diners can eat in the elevator-accessible dining hall or carry out their meal. To accommodate the increasing number of guests, there will be two buffet lines all evening.

Anyone wishing to donate money to the supper program can do so by sending a check to the church office marked Third Tuesday Suppers, or donating in The Quiet Can on the beverage table on supper night. All funds received go directly to supper expenses. For details, visit www.thirdtuesdaysuppers.com or call (630) 232-7120.
