WOW! What a crowd! Thank you to all of those who attended. The food was outstanding again! Wonderful, tender brisket…spicy sausage (even some deer sausage!!!) , potato salad and coleslaw, and of course, grilled chicken and bowls and bowls of homemade cobbler.
We sold approximately 200 plates of food and about 40 take outs! We had great door prizes, the best ever cake auction…and a great time of visiting with previous Burkett residents who came back for the dinner. Our trucks were outside for the kids to crawl on and for everyone to look at. Fire trucks appeal to all ages.
We got to visit with the original owner of our house! She had the most beautiful flower beds and garden of anyone around according to many. I invited her to bring her green thumb and come visit!
We raised approximately 1/3 of the remaining loan on our new building! That’s cool! We’ve had another 1/3 in donations. If we can keep this up, our new building will truly be ours soon!
