Circle the wagons and circle Friday, May 17 on the calendar.

There’s going to be a rib-eye roundup at the Colley Senior Complex on Elm Street in Troy.

Catherine Jordan, Senior Complex director, said the seniors’ pottery class suggested a steak supper as the spring fund-raiser for the complex. And some of the county’s best cooks agreed to “man” the chuck wagon.

Grill masters, James O. Johnson, Danny Rhodes and Carroll Rhodes and master chef Carter Sanders will prepare a feast fit for a king – steak, baked potatoes, salad, rolls, beverages and bread pudding, Jordan said.

“The prime rib-eyes will be grilled on site and they will be so tender they’ll melt in your mouth,” Jordan said. “Our grill masters really know how to cook steaks. The salad dressings will be homemade by Carter and so will the bead pudding. If you’ve never eaten Carter’s bread pudding, then you’ve never eaten bread pudding.”

Supper will be served in three seatings and at one-hour intervals from 5 until 8 p.m.

“The downstairs dining hall will be set up for the supper and we’ll have entertainment for those who dine in,” Jordan said. “We’ll also have take-out for those who would rather eat at home.”

Tickets for the Spring Steak Supper are $20 each and reservations must be made by May 15.

“When making reservations, we need to know whether you’re dining in or picking up,” Jordan said. “We also need to know how you want your rib-eye cooked – rare, medium or well done – and which time frame you prefer, from 5 to 6, 6 to 7 or 7 to 8 p.m. That way, we’ll have what you want and when you want it.”

For tickets, call (334) 808-8500 or stop by the Colley Senior Complex on East Elm Street in Troy.

Jordan said all of the proceeds from the steak supper will benefit the Colley Senior Complex.

“At the Colley Senior Complex, we offer more than 100 programs for senior citizens,” she said. “Each month we have between 900 and 1,200 seniors to visit the center.”
