Dinner is served thanks to many hands


Virgie Downey

Cooking for a crowd is second nature to Virgie Downey. One of nine children, she was helping out in her mother’s kitchen when she was a very young girl. She was making pies for her family by the time she was eight. Now she’s sharing her culinary talents on a much larger scale. Virgie and her husband, Jim, are in charge of the Thanksgiving meal that will be served next Thursday at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Elkader. About 100 are expected to attend; others get their meals delivered.

And it comes at a time when good news is needed: An “investigative story” released last week has challenged the land-use practices and conservation efforts of corn producers, suggesting that farmers are cashing in on the federal government’s ethanol mandate at the expense of “environmentally sensitive” land.
