Post Forsyth Senior Friendship Center 'all you can eat event' report!

VP Rodney Dempsey
Forsyth Mo. – I had the very great pleasure of attending a fund raising event held by the kind people at the Forsyth Senior Friendship Center located at 13879 US Hwy 160 who were asking $5 for an all you can eat breakfast! When I arrived, I was greeted by VP Rodney Dempsey (pictured above) who also took a moment to show me a display of what the new center will look like after it is built on Hwy 76, in the near future! Wow! Mr. Dempsey was quick to tell me that this center will be for 'everyone', not just just for those aged 55 or older. The site will contain all sorts of games and will seat an even larger number of diners, as the daily offerings of discounted foods are a very popular reason people like myself go there. (They have a monthly calendar of food and events that can be picked up any time at the site).
Hungry customers enjoying food and friendship!

When I sat down at a table, it was just like an upscale restaurant, only without the waiting. Almost immediately a volunteer server approached me, order pad in hand. On the menu was; scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits with gravy and pancakes. For the beverage selection, there was apple juice, orange juice and coffee! As I was on a very strict diet, I decided to order one of everything!

Before I could have believed it, a plate of food and the drinks were brought to me. I was in culinary heaven and thought the $5 cost was a real steal of a deal! The quality of that food was excellent and as I dug in to eat, I had also a chance to talk to a gentleman named Rick who told me that he goes to the Friendship Center at least twice a week. (I agreed and would urge everyone to call 417-546-6100 if they have any questions or need more details)! The Center is here to serve our community, which it does very well, and only asks that everyone frequent it from time to time! I know that I plan to!

  1. Great breakfast indeed. Our new Thrift Store will be opening soon to help in the efforts to show sustainability for the future building. The store is located in Forsyth behind Dollar General on the lower level of the White River Mall. We look forward to seeing everyone come and visit us.
