It’s 1979 and the parishioners are celebrating the Centennial of First Cornucopia Lutheran. As the ladies work, memories of the past come to life. Travel back to 1897 and meet Vivian’s grandmother, one of the founding members of the church; see Karin as a newlywed, learning the politics of the kitchen; and be there when Mavis first bursts through the swinging door. It’s 100 years of history in toe-tapping song and dance with a serving of hot dish and egg coffee.
Run Time: Approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes, with one 15-minute intermission.
