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 . . .
