Annual Lumberjack Supper

This year’s 80th Annual Lumberjack Supper will be held Jan. 28 from 4:30 to 7 pm at the Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church, 836 Michigan St. For the last 80 years the men of the Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church have been hosting the Lumberjack Supper. Originally known as the Cheeseman Lunch, the cooking was done on a wood stove and only about 65 meals were served. In the 1940s a kitchen was added to the church and they were able to increase service to approximately 150 guests. During the next 50 years the popularity of this event grew until now the men are serving about 800 meals.

The Lumberjack Supper includes family style corned beef, roast pork, cabbage, rutabagas, baked beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, applesauce, homemade rolls and butter, assorted pies, coffee and milk for $14 per person in advance or $15 at the door, with $7 admission for kids 5 to 12. Carryout dinners are available. Only a limited number of tickets are available for purchase from any United Methodist Men’s Club member, or at the church office. Call 743.3241 from 9 am to 2 pm Monday through Thursday and from 9 am to 1 pm Friday to arrange for ticket pickup.
