Mike's Fine Foods

Updated:

Friends and family of those that owned Mike's Fine Food's Italian cuisine get together to make meatballs and ravioli to benefit several Catholic churches.

Mike's off highway 7 between Columbus and Scammon, Kansas was open for about 40 years and closed in 2002. For the last few weekends a small group has got together at St. Bridget's Catholic Church to make and sell the famous food.

Proceeds of the sales benefit the Together Vision for the Bishops Cathedral in Wichita the rest will go to repairs St. Bridget's. Former employee Mary Trant says she enjoys seeing old friends just as much as they enjoy eating the food again.

"They just start crying it right after they start eating it because it just took them right back, they could just feel themselves right back in the restaurant, like I said it was just a whole experience I think, wasn't anything fancy, it was just kind of like family" says Trant.

The group has raised close to $8,000 dollars.

Sunday the 30th is the last day to buy. If you'd like to buy the ravioli, sauce or meatballs stop by St. Bridget's Hall at 6 North Keith St., Scammon, KS. Or call (620) 479-2601.

    A little more than a year after the May 22, 2011 tornado one of the few trees remaining in the area of 20th Street suddenly became decorated with paint and bird feeders. The experiment started slow.
