Family Picnic and Scholarship Drawing – Joe Stafford reports
Council 4442's Family Day Picnic, TAPs and Scholarship Drawing was held on July 30, 2017 and attended by approximately 90 members, family and friends. The weather was outstanding, no one complaint (I didn't hear any). The preparation started on Saturday, July 29th, with setting up the tents, tables and chairs, cleaning the grills, and purchasing of the food. We also purchased 2 LP 20 pound tanks, in as much as all but one of our five had expired. A special tanks to Butch Kealey and Bill Richards for being one of the first in on Sunday morning to start the food preparation. Also, a special thanks to Chanel Simard and Dennis Coleman for grilling/cooking outside under the tents. Father Bill blessed us with his presence and offered the opening prayer. The food lasted, with extra/leftovers to spare. The Magic Show ($200.00) was performed by Peter Jackson featuring a Magic Bunny. Three children attended and had a great time.
I want to personally thank Al Hamel once again, who through his perseverance and charm collected $237.00 for the 50/50 drawing. George Masciarelli won the drawing. Repeatedly, this year we had an army of volunteers which I'm truly grateful for. I just want to list a few that set up the tents, grills, table and chairs on Saturday, July 29th, and the cooking and preparation on Sunday, July 30th. Not in any particular order:
