SCOTLAND, Tex. (KFDX//KJTL) - More than 1,500 people made their way to Scotland for the 37th annual sausage feed.
Every year when the Knights of Columbus put on the sausage feed the population of Scotland just about triples. The population of Scotland is 500 and today they fed almost 1,600 people. About 3,600 pounds of sausage was prepared and it was all eaten by the end of the day.
On top of all the sausage folks could eat, they could also buy some to take home and there were homemade desserts to buy and take home as well.
Jerry Smith said there is one thing that brings so many people to this event year after year.
"Oh, it's the sausage. It's the sausage. It's such a unique blend of spices and seasoning in the sausage people say it is just the best they've ever had," Smith said.
All this money goes toward different causes which also contributes to how many people are there each year.
"The Knights of Columbus it's their main fundraiser and a lot of the money stays here," Smith said. "It keeps the hall up. They modernize, they remodel and whatever needs to be done. Some of the money goes to the church, some goes to the volunteer fire department, the North Texas Rehab and of course there are state and national charities also. And then the bake sale, the lady's organizations raise money for flowers or whatever the church needs."
Smith also said this takes almost a whole year to plan so it won't be long before the Knights of Columbus are planning next year's sausage feed.
