WAYS AND MEANS                                                       BILL SADLER

Wow, this is March and in March comes the first day of spring and we will say “where did the winter go” or “how nice a winter it has been”. At last Saturday’s meat draw I overheard some guys talking, saying how nice the weather is and they were going to shovel off the deck and get the barbecue out but first they were going to win the Big T-bone steaks. Another said the pork chops were good for him as they were cut the perfect thick-ness for barbecuing and the third fellow says he just loves to do one of the whole chickens and he went on to give his barbecue chicken recipe. On hearing this I smiled and walked away knowing I can be a part of ful-filling these fellows dreams.

Speaking of the first day of spring, do you know what follows the first day of spring? Well it is Easter and Barb has been filling up two hamper baskets. She has so much food she may have to buy bigger baskets. I told her not to worry as we can put the big hams and bags of potatoes on the outside. Tickets for the hampers will go on sale the first part of March with the draws being made March 28,2020. Also, on March 28th we will be having a seventh draw of six big hams, just in time for Easter.

Saturday meat draws, cake table and fifty- fifty draws is all done with the help of volunteers. If you would like to volunteer please speak with Barb Sadler or myself and we will find a spot for you.
