Saturday Night Jamboree hosts annual western night

The Saturday Night Jamboree held its annual Western/Barbeque dinner night recently at the First United Methodist Church in Washington. A special thanks to Paul Woolard Construction, Inc. and Woodard’s Insurance of Bath for providing, and Paul and Phyllis for cooking and cutting up, the barbeque. Loving volunteer Carolyn Jefferson registered 136 clients, while Tine, Kathy, Jim and Joyce tied cowboy bandanas around each client’s neck. A special thanks to First United Methodist Church for the use of their building and all of those who came out to help clean up and set up. Thank you! Thanks to Joyce for providing the materials for the bandanas. DJ Kenny Beacham played music for dancing, listening and toe-tapping pleasure.

Redmen member Kenny Beacham called games of Bingo and all winners received $1. Other caring volunteers helping for the evening were Jim Sadler, Tine Woolard, Michael Cutler, Kathy Lilley, Joyce Carrawan and Kin Wood.

Judy Hollis asked the blessing. Redmen members and friends served the barbeque plates with all the trimmings. Those serving included Paul and Phyllis Woolard, Kenny Beacham, Lawrence Beacham, Clyde Roberson, Kemp Huss, Tim Cashion, Gil and Susan Davis, Al Mathis, David and Sandra Gossett, Billy Campbell and Kin Wood.

Kenny Beacham led the activities and thanked the Redmen for the wonderful meal. Cowgirl Joyce Carrawan led in singing “Happy Birthday” to all the March honorees.
