by Kristin CasaleReporterStow -- Attendees of the annual Stow Women's Interfaith Dinner will celebrate a special anniversary during their next gathering.This is the 10th year the dinner has taken place in an effort to bring together women from Stow area churches.The dinner is scheduled for Feb. 8 at 6:30 p.m. in the Szabo Parish Center at Holy Family Parish, located at 3179 Kent Road in Stow.According to dinner committee member Dolores Fraser, the event will include food and entertainment. The Rev. Duane Crabbs of South Street Ministries in Akron will be the guest speaker during the occasion, and Marlene and Hannah Moses and Julie and Carly Stuneck will provide music.Fraser said the group decided not to open the dinner to men, to keep the attendance manageable. Approximately 100 women usually attend the dinner, she said, stating women from local retirement communities also are invited.Dinner committee member Judy Cox, who attends Stow Community United Church of Christ, said she has enjoyed attending the dinner over the years."We may worship a little differently, but we all have the same aims," she said. "We have more in common than we have differences."Cox praised the event."We have quite a diverse crowd," she said. "It's a time to get out and get to know people a little bit better. We want to make sure everybody feels welcome."Fraser said the committee members did not expect the dinner to continue for 10 years."A lot of times, when you start something, it fizzles out," she said. "We're kind of excited."Fraser, who attends St. Stephen Lutheran Church, said she enjoys the fellowship the dinner fosters."It's neat to get people together like that," she said. "We try to promote [the idea of] people not sitting with their own church so people get to know one another. It's just a nice relaxing evening."The cost for dinner, provided by Moe's Southwest Grill, is $10. The deadline to register for the event is Feb. 4. Registration information is available in all Stow churches or by calling Holy Family Parish at 330-688-6411.E-mail: kcasale@recordpub.comPhone: 330-686-3917
