Benefit Supper and Singing

Tonight there was a Benefit supper at the park again. It seems every week thee are a number of Benefit Suppers and music. It is a good time to have these gatherings, for Pinecraft is loaded down with people, and they have to eat. And there are always expenses to cover. I think the money tonight went toward the upkeep of the park. The top picture is the front side of people standing in line to pick up their plates.

This is just a small portion of the backside. Tonight was probably the biggest turn-out so far for this season.  

Father & daughter

I don't know if this couple is Amish or not.

Scooting down the bike trail.

Two of a kind in more ways than one...

Beck's Johnny's grandchildren all facing the sun in the sand.

Happy at play. For years Johnny and his wife have been coming down for the winter. This time he decided to get a chartered bus, find lodging and pay for two meals a day for his four children, their spouses and all his grandchildren. The total was 30+ people. They are enjoying their vacation. These children are all cousins or siblings.

Another Daddy and his children.

These men did the chicken, a total of 1100 pieces. I an under the impression it reached around with nothing to spare.

Ura Detweiler from gator Boys' Camp is visiting with a young man from Lancaster County.

Bikes were locked up on both side of the street going into the park. It was a huge crowd and a beautiful evening to be out.

The ingredients for successful Benefit Suppers are: lots of people, enough food, music and beautiful balmy evenings

  3. Great pics and I think those sandbox ones are my favorite - especially the one with all the boys. The striped shirt couple on their bikes - that's TOO funny, and the daddy holding the little girl's hand...that melts my heart.
