"This is the one main fundraiser the choir does each year," said Kim
Peterson-Quinn, LCHS vocal music teacher and director of the
madrigal dinner. "With all the funding uncertainty in education,
this fundraiser helps sustain us throughout the year."
fundraising activities will take place at the performances, with a
photo booth, a bake sale and a silent auction of items donated by
individuals and area businesses.
On the menu for the meal are orange almond salad on hearts of
romaine, chicken supreme, potato puff, green beans with bacon and
onion, rolls with butter, coffee, tea and wassail. Pumpkin cake with
creme cheese icing will be served for dessert.

the Christmas season and are generally set in the Middle Ages. The
meal is divided into courses, and skits of a comedic nature are
performed between the courses. In addition, a mix of medieval and
