Community Dinner hosted by Troy Presbyterian Church, Troy Rotary, and Troy Lions Club

by Veronica Seymour - April 12, 2022

Every month a community dinner is held on the second Monday of the month, at the Troy Presbyterian Church. The Church, along with Troy Rotary and Troy Lions Club members hosts this community free event. I visited with Rob Oldroyd of the Church and Troy Rotary along with Robyn Cummings of the Troy Lions Club.

It was found through various community groups and projects that there was a need in our community to help feed local families. This dinner started in January of this year, and they hope to continue it through the end of the year. The first few dinners were a spaghetti supper, next month they are going to feature Cinco De Mayo and have a Mexican theme, in June they are going to have a Picnic style meal with hamburgers and hot dogs and in July they are going to host the event outdoors with dinner and in an ice cream social with the local Jazz Band playing music. They will take off the month of August and hope to have great meals for the rest of the months of this year.

Rob stated that there was a great need that was found in our community and through networking with the various organization we came together to make this happen. The church was able to do a few updates in the kitchen and parlor area to get ready for this and many community events by local grants and funding they applied for. It’s a great way for the community to be involved and to help serve those in need in our community. This is a free meal they do except donations but it is free to the community which is made possible by many, many donations from various donors.

Robyn from Lions stated that it’s a great way to have a hot meal, great fellowship, and friendship. Through grants offered by various organizations including Troy Lions Club Foundation, you can utilize these monies to work on community events and projects.

It’s always great when various sectors of our community come together to have one objective in mind and that is helping feed our community.
Looking around the room it was nice to see the array of various ages enjoying the meal and fellowship. Come join us for our next Community Dinner, the second Monday of the month from 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m., the dinner is free and open to the public, and donations are graciously accepted. They also offer meals to go so if you cannot stay you can grab them to go.

If you would like to learn more about this monthly community event, or perhaps join one of these great community clubs here in Troy, please reach out to them via their Facebook pages or by reaching out to any rotarian or lions club members.
