We had the Hinson Endowment Barbeque Fundraiser on October 2, 2021 from 4:00 to 7:30 pm. 
We wish to thank everyone who helped with this endeavor with prepping and cooking the meats on Thursday and Friday and those who helped cupping slaw, wrapping plastic ware and preparing other items for the Saturday meal.

We truly appreciate the amount of help that came out on the day of the Dinner prepping items, cooking, packing & serving To-Go boxes, and cleaning up. We completely sold out of Ribs and Barbeque!
 Thank you all so much for your help with this mission!
