[August 14, 2013]  Lincoln's Oasis Senior Center and St. John United Church of Christ are working together on the 14th annual Germanfest. Authentic German food will be served Oct. 19 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of St. John United Church of Christ in Lincoln.

The Alley Kats Band will furnish music during the serving time, including polka music for dancing or listening -- outside, weather permitting.

Brats, red cabbage, sauerkraut, German potato salad, apple strudel, German chocolate cake or angel food cake will be served with apple cider, tea or coffee. A hot dog meal with chips, dessert and drink will also be available. The church youth will offer the same menu in a drive-thru line, available alongside the former ALMH east parking lot at the alley.

Parking for the church is on the corner of Maple and Eighth streets.

Games for children of all ages will be sponsored on the lawn alongside the parking lot. There will also be a 50-50 raffle and bake sale during the 11-3 hours.

Tickets for the German meal are $8.50 and the hot dog meal is $4. Free delivery in town will be available with orders of six or more prepaid tickets. Tickets are available from the church and Oasis members or by calling Marilyn Armbrust at 732-4261. Tickets will also be available at the Oasis booth at the balloon festival and at the door the day of Germanfest.
