Pig Roast at Perham Center for the Arts

The community has shown its support for the Perham Center for the Arts, and now organizers of the arts center want to show their appreciation.

Dick Stoderl, an arts center board member, said the board will be hosting a pig roast as a way to say ‘thank you’ to the community, and especially to the parishioners of the former St. Stanislaus Church, without whom the arts center would not exist today.

The pig roast will be held on the grounds of the Perham Center for the Arts this Saturday, Sept. 14 from 4-7 p.m. The event will feature live music and games for kids. Two hogs will be roasted; also on the menu will be pasta salad, bean hot dish, cookies and beverages.

In addition, photography club members out of Detroit Lakes will be exhibiting some of their work.

Stoderl said the pig roast will serve as a social opportunity for local artists and entertainers, providing them with a place to meet and mingle.

In addition, “this gives us a chance to let the community come and see us again,” he said. “To get our names out there and get people to know us.”

The Perham Center for the Arts is a new nonprofit organization that is in the process of renovating the former St. Stanislaus Church into an arts center. When complete, the center will host live performances and art exhibits of all sorts.

All ages are welcome to the pig roast. Donations for the arts center will be accepted.
