Swift Current and area residents can purchase tickets for a spring Salad Smorg Lunch to support St. Olaf's Lutheran Church towards the end of the month.

The fundraiser lunch is set for Tuesday, May 28 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the basement area of St. Olaf's.

Karen Braun, a member of the organizing committee for the St. Olaf's Salad Smorg Lunch, notes that after hearing of another church doing something similar, they decided to recreate the fundraiser.

"This is a new idea that we're doing to raise funds for the church," she said. "We'll be serving a wide variety of salads and there will be some gluten-free and lactose free options as well."

The Salad Smorg will also include dessert, different types of bread, tea, coffee, and juice and proceeds will go to the church and their programs.

"It's open to everyone, hopefully, most people will be able to come on their lunch hour," said Braun. 

She notes that the lunch will take place on a weekday and last two hours to make it more accessible to community members.

Anyone interested in attending the smorg can purchase tickets for $20 per person from the church office by calling (306) 773 - 4697, ext .720.
