ST. HENRY — The St. Henry Heinrichsdorf Fest, sponsored by the St. Henry Community Club and slated for June 12-13, has been canceled this year due to COVID-19. Instead, the club has decided to hold a drive-thru for barbecue chicken dinners beginning at 4 p.m. ET at the C.K. of A. Hall in St. Henry on Saturday, June 13.

“The annual Heinrichsdorf Fest helps our Club raise funds to pay for a variety of events and projects for the benefit of the people of St. Henry,” Carrie Sitzman, treasurer for the St. Henry Community Club, said in a press release. “The Club uses funds raised from our annual Fest to pay for the street lights in town, and hold special events for Club members and their families, such as an Easter Egg Hunt, Halloween Party and having Santa Claus visit with the children at Christmas each year, just to name a few things.”

She added: “Since we are not able to have our Heinrichsdorf Fest this year, we still wanted to raise some money to help cover the costs of these events. Of course, we also did not want to deprive people of our famous BBQ chicken dinners we have every year at the Fest!”

The dinners to be sold June 13 cost $10 for ½ barbecue chicken, with potato salad, baked beans and slaw. No credit or debit cards will be accepted.

Next year’s Heinrichsdorf Fest will be held June 11-12.
