The Pleasant Hill - Rocky Community Club will host its annual benefit dinner next Saturday, November 6, the opening day of deer season, for area residents, community friends, and visiting hunters. Serving begins at 5:00pm and continues until 8:30 or food runs out. Meals are by donation and everyone is welcome. Why cook... when you and your guests can enjoy a bountiful spread that includes roast turkey with all the trimmings, side dishes of every description, salads, bread and desserts to make your mouth water? Myron Uecker promises we will not run out of sweet tea this year. This fall tradition is a full family affair, not to be missed.
The historic Pleasant Hill – Rocky schoolhouse on CR 205 (Rocky Road, CR 105 from Blanco to the Divide) at U.S. 290 West has been the scene of a benefit fund-raiser every year but two since 1958, when members of the original Pleasant Hill – Rocky Home Demonstration Club decided to host a charitable event to support worthy community organizations. In 1985 and 1986, the club tried a chili-and-bean supper and a spaghetti dinner, but wisely opted to return to the more popular “Smorgasbord” with its traditional home-cooked fare.
Funds raised from generous diners help support the Blanco and Johnson City libraries, Johnson City and Stonewall volunteer fire departments, Blanco County Youth Council (Annual Stock Show), M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, North Blanco County EMS and the Hill Country Memorial Hospital Wellness Center.
For those who cannot attend, but still wish to support these organizations, please send contributions to: PH-RCC Smorgasbord, P.O. Box 1502, Johnson City, Texas 78636-1502.
A full report on funds raised and the distribution to the various organizations listed will be published after the event.
