Annual hog roast to benefit UDMO

Southfield Wellness Community, located at 2416 Des Moines St., Webster City, will host its annual hog roast on Sunday, at the Independent and Assisted Living garages.

Serving is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will consist of pork sandwiches, all the fixings, dessert and beverage. No reservations are required for the free event which will signal the National Nursing Home Week celebration May 12 to 18.

A basket will be available to make optional, tax-deductible donations to Upper Des Moines Opportunity to help those in need. After the event last year, Southfield donated enough money to purchase twelve truckloads of food for the local UDMO food pantry.

Marilyn Middleton, marketing coordinator, encourages everyone to stop by after church for a free meal and visit the care center or the independent and assisted living apartments. Southfield Wellness Community, which is owned by ABCM Corporation based in Hampton.
