KEUTERVILLE It is time for the 40th annual St. Mary’s / Holy Cross parish dinner. Ever year in February, the scents of roast beef, ham, homemade potatoes, rolls and desserts can be counted on wafting from the Keuterville Hall. This year’s event is Sunday, Feb. 26, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In 1997, Holy Cross parish combined with St. Mary’s parish of Cottonwood in order to share the same priest. Today, the building is used for weddings and funerals and special occasions throughout the year. In recent years, it has also seen Sunday evening Mass throughout the summer, starting Memorial Day and running through Labor Day. One-hundred-six years later, Keuterville residents and other parishioners from across the Prairie enjoy using the old church, including its antique altars made in Germany and shipped to Idaho.
The dinner includes Bingo and raffles. Cost is $9 for adults, $4 for grades 1-6, with kindergarten and preschool children getting in free.
