Community dinners bring neighbors together

WINSTED/COLEBROOK — Two separate community dinners last week gave residents a chance to come in from the cold and meet each other.On Thursday, Feb. 16, the Winsted United Methodist Church held a beef stew dinner. Approximately 40 residents were treated to a meal that included beef stew, potatoes, string beans, carrots and corn. Salads, rolls and desserts made by members of the church were also served.“We hold community dinners because we like bringing people together,” Pastor Al Miller said.The dinner was a benefit for the church and its services, including their thrift shop and food pantry.“We have a lot of people from the community who help us do some good,” Miller said. “In return, we like to help them out.”On Saturday, Feb. 18, the Colebrook Congregational Church Auxiliary held a chili supper at the Colebrook Senior and Community Center. The homemade supper, which was cooked by auxiliary members, consisted of chili, macaroni and cheese, cornbread and salad.“These are meals that bring everyone together,” church minister Alice Murphy said. “It’s good to see members of the community getting together.”
