HOLMEN, WI (WKBT) -

Holmen residents ate for a reason on Sunday.

About 250 people packed the Lewis Valley Lutheran Church for a meatball dinner on Sunday.

The meal is part of Mission Fest, a fundraiser to help support local missions in the area.

Guests lined up for lefse, potatoes and of course meatballs and gravy.

Organizers say it's a lot of food to make, but after learning the hard way, they now always have enough.

Organizers say the event raised more than $1,500.
