cruise 'n barbecue

Saturday, april 27

Our annual Cruise ’n Barbecue will be held on Saturday, April 27.  This year there will be no Poker Cruise, so all the day’s events will begin at 10 a.m.  This includes the Car Show as well as serving of Port-a-Pit chicken dinners at 10 a.m. Events will continue until 3 p.m. at which time trophies will be awarded, followed by drawings for the always awesome raffle prize packages contributed by individuals and organizations.  In the meantime, there will be plenty of music, ice cream, baked goods and other activities to be enjoyed throughout the day.

The proceeds from this year’s event will go to St. Paul’s Helping Hands Fund which is available to meet acute financial needs of individuals and families in the congregation and community.

   It is time to begin gathering items for our Cruise ‘n Barbecue Raffle Baskets.  As in the past we would like for each Lutheran Women’s Circle to provide a basket and church members to create a basket or donate items.  All baskets and donations will be greatly appreciated. 

   Last year some of the top ticketed items were: $250 Food Lion Gift Card, $250 Walmart Gift Card, Cheerwine Bench, Fire Pit, Bistro Set, Garden Cart, Gas Grill, Wheelbarrow, and a Biltmore Weekend  Getaway.

  If you are going to create a basket, please contact Susan Bernhardt or Terri Powlas so that there are no repeats.  If you want to donate an item, gift cards are always a hit or ask Susan and Terri what baskets need items included. 

   Please have your basket or donated items to the church by Thursday, April 25.  Last year, we had 26 baskets and raised over $7200.   We are looking forward to another wonderful year of great baskets!

   If you have any questions or would like more information please contact Susan Bernhardt or Terri Powlas.
