Block Party

Our happy crew traveled down to Springville this evening for their annual block party sponsored by the Scouts. The event was held in the old Springville gym, which is a nice facility. The Venturers provided chili, hot dogs, and nachos for donations and made a small profit. The oldies station was blasting away on the PA. The fun included a magic show, door prizes, face painting, cornhole, a friendly drug-sniffing dog and his handlers, and VIP guest Smokey the Bear. The DNR officer talked Rachel into wearing the bear costume. Michael and Ben won the cornhole tournament. It was a fun event all the way around. Looking over the pictures after I got home, though, it occurs to me that I have a very large number of pictures of youth cooking. Hmmm . . .
