Annual Chicken Noodle Suppers

with No Comments


One of the programs and fundraisers for Zion Lutheran – Alva is the annual Chicken Noodle Supper.

Men’s Club

The Chicken Noodle Suppers/Dinners were originated by the Men’s Club and they have continued to grow. Chef Pete Hort planned and directed the event with the help of Men’s Club members.

Originally the Chicken Noodle Suppers were held in the Lutheran School basement, but the need for bigger facilities has compelled the annual event to be held in a building at the Woods County Fairgrounds.

Ruth Circle

The Ruth Circle promotes the Christian fellowship of women in the church. Their mission is not just fellowship, but to also help and support Zion in its outreach to the community of Alva. They are now the organizers of the annual Chicken Noodle Suppers in October that regularly feed over one thousand people in the Alva Community.
