BBQ Roof Fund Raiser – Donations Welcome!

Greetings,

   We are often asked, “What’s going on with the BBQ Roof project?” As most of you know, when the BBQ Pit was built way back when, no one thought the WOODEN ROOF would be a problem, and perhaps it wasn’t for a long time. That is… until it caught fire!

Here’s where we are as of today.

All the new trusses are up and all the purlins are one.

Our new forest green metal will be here this Friday.

We have a crack team of volunteers that are going to finish it.

We should be completed in the next 2 weeks.

This is why we have launched our BBQ Roof Fund Raiser.

We need $1,400 to complete the project.

That’s all for now. – Commander Fred Pierce
