The First Presbyterian Church of Lewiston, 505 Cayuga St., will offer a traditional St. Patrick’s Day takeout dinner from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, March 17. Drive-thru delivery will be at the back entrance of the church.
Dinner will include corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, bread and dessert. Preorder dinners are for sale for $15 and can be reserved by Friday, March 11. Call the church office at 716-754-4945 and leave a name, phone number and number of dinners to be reserved.
Full-price dinners at the door are $17, and will be on a first-come, first-served basis until 6 p.m. (or sold out). Cash-only payments are appreciated.
Proceeds from the dinner will go toward preservation of the Old Stone Church – Lewiston’s oldest and most historic church. The first church built in Lewiston opened in 1817 and played a key role in many village milestones. During the Civil War, it aided in the transport of slaves seeking freedom on the Underground Railroad. Church members would light the steeple providing a signal to peacekeepers in Queenston, Ontario, letting them know that it was safe for the escaping slaves to cross the Niagara River to freedom.
Lewiston Presbyterian Church is open to all for worship on Sundays at 11:15 a.m.
