two fundraisers back to back this month and it has been a blast!
First of all, I got to help make noodles for our church's fundraiser, then I got to attend a good old-fashioned hog roast and then I got to actually eat the noodles I made. Yowza! That's a good month.
The best thing about small town fundraisers is raising money for a local cause. Dang, that feels good.
Second is all the people you get to see. I always run into people I know and haven't seen in awhile, or meet someone new (my husband hates that part because he's afraid he'll forget their name, ha!).
Third is all the glorious food. Which is not so good right before the Halloween-Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Year's Food Fest that's about to hit! But I enjoyed it anyway.
The hog roast was in the Catholic church's parish hall. Several of the local volunteer firefighters stayed up all night the night before roasting a whole hog. My hubby went down to hang out with them for a little while.
They had heaping pans of wonderful meat, beans, chips, tea and dessert. Does it get any better than that?
So first, here's a picture of what all the money went for. A newly renovated fire truck! Yay! And after that, I just had to share what a Midwest small-town-event parking lot looks like. They are all trucks, LOL!
