Carol Ann O’Dell is a tireless worker for Wesley United Methodist Church in Sulphur Springs, and she enjoys her work! She plays organ for Sunday Morning Worship as well as assisting with Wesley’s Wednesday Night Supper and services. Now she is helping promote the annual Fall Roundup church fundraiser set for Saturday November 23, 2019, and stopped by to chat about it on the KSST Good Morning Show with Enola Gay.
“Wesley is a joyful church and we love to share it! Stew-making is a big tradition and there have been some wonderful stew cooks at Wesley over the past 40 years. Some have passed on now, but their apprentices or family members just step in and take their place. Those good family recipes are preserved, as is the fellowship that Fall Roundup is so well known for! Chicken stew, beef stew and a pot of chili cooked outdoors will be ready to serve at 4:30pm. Your $6 ticket gets you all-you-can eat plus all the other exciting activities of the evening, too. Kids tickets are $4 for age 10 and under, and free for age 5 and under. The live auction at 6:30 pm is another exciting feature of Fall Roundup, and auctioneer Loyd Lennon keeps it moving and a lot of fun! We have some nice items too, including an Apple watch, a day use of The Venue downtown, a series of guitar lessons by Joe Clark, an Italian dinner for 6-8 persons and a Mexican dinner for 6-8 persons, plus lots of fun and useful auction items. The old-fashioned Country Store will be stocked with homemade jams, jellies, aprons, linens and more, and a Silent Auction will also be up and running when Fall Roundup opens at 4:30 pm. Child care will also be provided that evening. We want to invite the public who may be new to town or new to Wesley. We especially invite former Wesley members to “come home” for the evening and enjoy great fellowship with old friends. Wesley United Methodist Church is located at 614 Texas Street in Sulphur Springs. Find out more at wesleysst.org.”
