This is an event sponsored by the Quinn Memorial AME Church Lay Organization and is open to the public with tickets available for a $15 donation.

They can be purchased in advance from any lay person, by calling (740) 282-3192 or at the door.

The event will have a Hawaiian theme.

Lay organization members preparing for the feast are Patricia Fletcher, president; Soundra Palmer, vice president; Dolores Young, treasurer; Jacqueline Gibson, parliamentarian; Mattie Patterson, activity chairperson; Lisa Thomas, secretary; and Marion Young.

Mary and Bill Collins are in charge of the array of desserts with assistance from Betty Simpson, wife of the church's pastor, the Rev. Charles Simpson.

Fletcher, originator of the idea for Taste of Quinn, has said in the past the event has been successful and has drawn a diversified crowd for a relaxing outing minus any program, speeches or awards - just good food, good friends and good fellowship.

There also will be mystery boxes available for $15 and primarily containing jewelry.

Proceeds from the event will benefit scholarships, educational seminars, and delegates to conference to name a few causes.
