The Women of St. Barnabas met on Sunday, June 26th. Thanks to all of you who attended.
The Pentecost chili cook off was under new leads this year. A big thank you to Kay, Melissa, and Sheila for putting this together. We had many new chili chefs this year which was great. This has become an annual staple in the St. Barnabas parish life.
July marks our annual Community Dinner BBQ. We cook up burgers & hot dogs, corn on the cob, cole slaw, watermelon & ice cream and eat outside. It is great fun and the weather is forecast to be wonderful, so please join us. Service begins at 5:00 p.m. and clean-up at 6:00 p.m. No need to come early and stay late, an hour or two at any time during the afternoon is a big help. Thanks!
Thanks to the joyful participation of many people, this year’s chili cook-off was a great success. We had five chili contestants with Carols Bridges’ white bean chili and Shannon Reel’s traditional chili taking top honors. Carol received a chili pepper scarf knitted by Sandy Hunnicut (thank you Sandy) and other goodies. Shannon won the right to pick the hymns on Sunday, June 5, and she did a great job!
Thank you to everyone who helped with planning, set-up, clean up, cooking and eating. Well Done!
