Start with 400 pounds of flour and 5,760 eggs

A team of volunteers recently joined together to continue a nearly century-old tradition of combining 400 pounds of flour and 180 dozens of eggs – that’s 5,760 eggs – into rows and rows of tables filled with homemade noodles. In total, they will fill their social hall twice in preparation for St. Joseph’s 79th Annual 4th of July Celebration in Lucinda. It is Clarion County’s oldest Independence Day event. The event features the traditional all-you-can-eat chicken and ham dinners, games of skill and chance for all ages, quilt tent, called-number games, live entertainment and a grand prize drawing worth over $10,000 in cash and prizes. A complete schedule of the day’s events will be published in the June 28 edition of The Clarion News. (Submitted photo)
