We were again pleased to have ECHO as our exclusive Chainsaw Sponsor this year and would like to thank them for their generous donations of cash, saws, safety equipment, clothing and oil
Jerry France (aka Grandpa Elf) again prepared a great fish fry on Wednesday night. The hush puppies from Randy Everett were outstanding again with his secret recipe. There was plenty of delicious fish, hush puppies, other food dishes, dessert and beverages for all.
