The Saturday Night Jamboree held its annual hotdog cookout recently at the Redmen’s Lodge in Washington. Loving volunteer Carol Jefferson registered 139 clients, while Joyce Carawan helped with nametags.

Russell Jefferson kept a close watch at the door, while DJ Kenny Beacham played music for dancing, listening and toe-tapping pleasure.

Redmen member Beacham called games of bingo, and all winners received $1. Other caring volunteers helping for the evening were: Marlene Sprouse, Tine Woolard, Michael Cutler, Martha Seighman, Kathy Lilly and Jim Sadler.

A special performance by the 15th Street Church of God’s New Missions Class was led by Terry Connors and Shellie Hodges. The songs the class sang were “God Bless America,” and the class did sign language to “Let There Be Peace on Earth.” The class also led in the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag and the Christian flag. Leslie Hodges asked the blessing. Redmen members and their wives and friends served hotdogs and the trimmings. Those serving included Kenny Beacham, Page Davis, Lawrence Beacham, Richard and Sandy Gerald, Neil Woolard, David and Sandra Gossett, Kemp and Pam Huss, Karl Simos and Leslie Jordan.

Sprouse led the activities and thanked the Redmen for the wonderful meal. July birthdays will be recognized next month along with the August birthdays.

The next Jamboree will be held Aug. 12, from 6-8 p.m. All mentally/physically challenged residents and all volunteers are urged to attend.
