Traditional chicken pie supper is Wednesday at Wauseon church

On Wednesday the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Wauseon will once again host its annual Chicken Pie Supper.

This is the 141st year for this delicious tradition which began in 1879 with a fried chicken dinner for 40 and has been held every year since except 1943, when it was cancelled due to sugar rationing, and 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The event has grown and changed over the years to become a generous homemade meal served to over 900 people.

Serving in 2021 will be drive thru only available in the church parking lot beginning at 4:30 p.m. until sold out. Carry-out will also be available.

The menu for the dinner continues to include homemade chicken pie and gravy, real mashed potatoes, cole slaw, cranberry salad, and assorted homemade dessert pies.

The public is cordially invited to enjoy this special tradition. The church is located at 129 East Elm St. in Wauseon across from the post office.
