 Annual St Patrick’s Day Dinner

Saturday, March 17th, 2018 at the Fire Barn
Social 6:00pm b.y.o.b., Dinner 6:45pm, Family Style ( all you can eat! )

 

As advertised this was a mouth watering meal where one could eat all they wanted and you were still asked if you would like more.  With 89 people in attendance this was the largest gathering for this dinner in the last three years (2017 75 people and 2016 87).  Thanks to the Fire Barn Association there was a brand new dishwasher that made cleanup alot easier and was much appreciated.  Still alot of work and planning goes into an event like this so starting with Eve McPheeters and ending with the floor sweeper on the way out (probably Eve McPheeters) a big THANK YOU goes out to all that helped make this the successful event it was.

The Seaside Fair Returned 

Saturday, July 15th,  10am – 3pm

After a 3 year hiatus the Sea Side Fair returned with a vengeance.  The weather certainly helped, as it was overcast keeping people off the beaches and participating in the great American tradition of shopping.  Traffic was heavy from morning to late afternoon.  Eve McPheeters called this years Fair a “HUGH SUCCESS” for BPCC, that means a great big THANK YOU needs to go out to all the volunteers that made this happen.  From set-up to take-down and everything in between this is a big undertaking and requires alot of people to make it the success it apparently was. So if you were involved please give yourself a big pat on the back, rest up, and get ready to do it all over again next year.  Remember it is all for a Good Cause.
