For the last 85 years, the men of the Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church have hosted the Lumberjack Supper. Originally known as the Cheeseman Lunch, the cooking was done on a wood stove and about 65 meals were served. Over the next 50-odd years the popularity of this event grew, and now the men are serving up to 800 meals. They prepare, cook and serve all the food – except the pies – themselves.
This year’s 85th annual Lumberjack Supper will be held Jan. 29, 2020 at the Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church, 836 Michigan Street, 4:30-7 pm. This extremely popular not-for-profit event will once again serve family-style corned beef, roast pork, cabbage, rutabagas, baked beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, applesauce, bread and butter, assorted pies, coffee and milk.
Tickets are $16 per person in advance or $17 at the door. Kids ages 5-12 eat for $7. Carryout dinners are available from 3:30-6:30 pm. 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 to arrange for ticket pickup.
