The annual Lee Wilson BBQ was held on Wednesday and attended by 95 members!
My heartfelt appreciation to the crew that made it a success. Treasurer Larry Lundberg did all the shopping for the necessities. He spent two days prepping for the meal, cutting and sautéing the meat, onions, etc. He put together the salad, baking the garlic bread and corn at the POA kitchen.
On the morning of the event, he arrived at 9:00 am to start his ‘road kill chili’, complete the shopping and ensuring all loose ends were tied up for the cooking crew and helpers. As hot as it was outside, it was just as stifling inside the kitchen. After the BBQ, he spent the next day cleaning his utensils and stowing them for the next event. For those who attended, please take a moment to express your gratitude to Larry and the crew for their efforts.
Brian Bennert and Bob Kosovilka stepped up to set up the chow line and serving the steaks and chili. Terry Handforth and Bill Santos grilled the steaks in the POA parking lot in the over 90-degree heat. Sgt.-At-Arms Cindy Buell helped with the collection of donations for the chaplaincy and the raffle.
Rich Frazier and John Quinn ran the bar. Again, a big thank you all for all your efforts!!
A shout out to the POA for allowing the use of their BBQ trailer and as always, the hall itself.
Condolences to the families of retired Capt. Randy Schriefer #3540,
Capt. Larry Otter #1013, and Sgt. Herrell J. “Jay” Houston #1198
