Another year.
Another Barbecue.
Another successful fundraiser.
There were a couple hiccups….
But we managed to get back on track fairly quickly and no one was the wiser.

Lions Neil Atkinson, Soapy Lingle and Mike Norton showed up early early early to get the smoker going.

This year Marc Ormsby (FatMo’s) donated his smoker for us to use.   He also showed us a few tricks to have a more moist rib.

McGivney’s Sports Bar and Grill donated their bar for a second year in a row.
McGivney’s and Marc Ormsby…. generous generous people.
Most Lions showed up to help, to razz, to meet and greet.   There was something to do for everyone.

As usual, dinner was fantastic!
This year went smoother at our new site than last year….

Last year, it was McGivney’s customers.   This year, they were there for us.
It was a good evening.  We got to thank people for supporting us and the American Diabetes Association!  IN PERSON!
We got to share who we are.
What we do.
Why we do what we do.

It was a good day.  A good fundraiser.
