It’s that time of the year again. Time to put on a cozy sweater and have a plate of sizzling sausages with the Milbank Orphan Grain Train. The Milbank OGT hosts its annual sausage dinner on Sunday, October 27, from 11 a.m until 1 p.m. at the Emanuel Lutheran Church fellowship hall. The menu features Waldner’s specialty German-style sausages, buttered potatoes, salad, dessert, and beverages. A freewill offering will be taken.
Proceeds go to fellow South Dakotans, who live in areas in the southern part of the state, which were ravaged by floods, tornadoes, and heavy rainfall. The Emanuel Lutheran Women Mission Sewing Group will display and sell quilts. Proceeds from the sales also go to the South Dakota Relief Fund.
The Orphan Grain Train, headquartered in Norfolk, Nebraska, has begun sending vouchers to aid the flood victims and to help purchase furnaces, sheetrock, and other necessary items.
The Milbank OGT is also accepting bicycles, but only bicycles in good working condition. Bikes can be dropped off anytime at the south side of the warehouse at 101 W. 12th Avenue. Warehouse hours are Tuesdays from 3 – 5 p.m., and Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. until noon.
