The Richland Rural Life Center, located at 969 E. Crall Rd. in Mansfield, is gearing up for its annual chicken dinner. Scheduled for Saturday, October 7 from 4 to 6 PM, this event is a tradition that brings the community together for a noble cause.
The center, a non-profit organization, has been a cornerstone in supporting local 4-H and Boy/Cub Scout troops. The proceeds from the dinner and other events are channeled towards maintaining the land and facilities that these community groups use. For more information, you can reach out to the center at 419-544-2418.
What’s on the Menu?
The dinner promises a culinary experience that’s as rich as the cause it supports. Imagine chicken slow-cooked over an open pit, filling the air with an aroma that’s hard to resist. But that’s not all. The dinner plate offers a choice between buttered parsley potatoes or Au gratin potatoes. For the side, you can opt for an old-fashioned slaw salad or applesauce. To round off the meal, each plate comes with a dinner roll, a beverage, and a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream.
Adult meals are priced at $12 and include a half chicken, while seniors and children (10 and under) can enjoy a quarter chicken for just $7. If you’re in a hurry or prefer to dine at home, carry-out meals are also available. For those who can’t get enough of the delicious chicken, extra halves are available for $5 each. And if you’re a fan of the homemade vanilla ice cream, quarts are available for purchase at $5.
How to Participate
The entrance to the Richland Rural Life Center is conveniently located between Stewart Rd. and Rt. 545 in the Madison area. Tickets for the dinner will be available at the door, making it easy for last-minute attendees to join in on the fun and philanthropy.
