A little history regarding our Smorgasbord: The first Smorgasbord
dinner was held on October 18, 1987, in the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Beam. It
was from this gathering that the idea to open the dinner to the community was
born. Since then, St. John's has hosted this dinner annually for the community,
usually held on the second Tuesday in October. This dinner has become quite popular
and sells out each year. A wide variety of foods from which to choose is offered.
In typical Scandinavian fashion, three groupings of foods will be available. First,
a major feature of Scandinavian eating is the "cold table". literally,
a table bearing many different cold items from which guests can choose, returning
as often as they like. Among the colds items we serve are: pickled beets, pickled
cucumbers, coleslaw or green bean salad, pickled apples, a spice fruit tray, deviled
eggs, cheese, tomatoes in oil/vinegar, sweet and dill pickles, Jell-O and pickled
fish. In addition to the "cold table"., we serve an array of hot dishes
including: roast pork, Swedish meatballs, potatoes with white gravy and peas,
cabbage rolls, beans and cabbage. Finally, after a hearty feast, one can relax
and enjoy rice pudding and Swedish pancakes with apricot or lingonberry jam. A
variety of cookies are served with what else but hot, strong coffee.

an exciting new sport that has women and men shooting authentic .45 caliber single
action six shooters (wax bullets) at 24Ē round targets from a holstered position.
Itís as exciting as dropping the clutch on a dragster, and as addictive as a video
game. Shooters must wear period costumes of late 1800ís.
The general public
is encouraged to dress in cultural heritage of the 1890ís. Food vendors and dry
goods vendors will be asked to dress in 1890ís garb and to create 1890ís era booths.
There is no doubt about it, our event will truly be the Best of the West!"
