Ahoy Y’all! Once again, the annual Shrimp Boil was a belly-busting feast! We all enjoyed succulent fresh shrimp expertly prepared by Bob Duff and Mike Ziegler. The kitchen staff was augmented by Deedee Cheek, Kathleen Vance, Michael Cain and Bill Cook. Together they made up a well-oiled, perfectly orchestrated cooking machine which produced corn-on-the-cob, green beans, corn bread, salad and various accoutrements to supplement the yummy shrimp! Meanwhile, out in the dining room, Sue Stier, Russell Vance, Linda Raymond and Bev Slager were hard at work setting the tables and preparing for the banquet, and then helping with service. Linda performed the extra duty of volunteering to be the “Official Corn Taster” and selflessly tested each batch of the hot fresh cobs to ensure that they were cooked brilliantly for the other members. Once again, Carol Pim provided exquisite and creative centerpieces, which were originally created with the help of her grand-daughters Kaitlyn and Natalie, for the tables. And Tim Stier ensured that we were all entertained with some foot-tappin’ Zydeco music – a perfect complement to a shrimp dinner. Amy Gallagher pitched in at the end to assist our team with clean-up, which is always a job! Thanks to all the great volunteers, a splendid time was had by all, and we don’t think anyone went home hungry!!
