Thousands of pounds of meat processed at local sausage dinner

Amarillo, TX - After months of planning, Saint Francis Catholic Church in Amarillo served hundreds of people a homemade sausage dinner as part of their annual fundraiser.

Sunday's feast marks the 56th one the church has prepared. Organizers say more than 3,000 pounds of sausage was processed and nearly 800 pounds of potatoes were pealed.

They say it's the help of the whole parish that made Sunday's sausage dinner possible, and kept the more than 1,200 guests full.

They also say around 500 carry out plates were made for guests who could not be there Sunday afternoon. Money raised directly benefits church operations.
