Congregation member Allison Arnold probably expressed the opinion of many members of the Harkness Church when she said, The churchs connection to Dr. Harkness has helped to keep us active and to keep our spirit going. Our church will always have a future because of its solid background.
The Harkness Methodist Churchs annual chicken pie supper brings most of the church's members together for work and fellowship, though everyone is invited to enjoy their dinner of chicken and biscuits, gravy, mashed potatoes, squash, peas, salads, beverages and homemade cakes for dessert.
Serving for the Oct. 14 dinner will begin at 4 p.m. and last until all are served. The dinner is $7 for adults, $3 for children ages six to 12 and pre-school-age children are served free. Take-out dinners are available.
In recognition of the special event, former pastors will be served free and everyone attending in period dress will receive a meal for half-price. In a spirit of charity, everyone attending is encouraged to bring a donation of a non-perishable food item for the Adirondack Community Action Program Food Shelf. In keeping with the dinners centennial theme, the goal is to collect 100 pounds of food.
