We finished cleaning the Hall at noon today - 5 ladies working our collective Asses off (sorry Mr and Mrs Barr). But the Hall looks great and ready for the next gig - a 50th wedding anniversary dinner on August 6th for 50 people and then the famous Pig Roast on August 12 which should have over 250 people.
The turnout wasn't as expected - we only cleared about $451.17 but it is enough for one month's bills - hopefully the rest of the functions will do better.
We had the usual menu for our fish and chicken fry - 50 pounds of white fish locally caught in Blind River, 100 pounds of chicken (legs and thighs), corn, mashed potatoes, home made baked beans (I pretty well made them because I added all the ingredients and they were delish) corn, gravy, buns, corn fritters, veggie tray, devilled eggs (guess), cheese tray, pickle tray, cole slaw, macaroni and pasta salads, 4 kinds of jello salads, ice tea, lemonade tea and decaf and regular coffee and all the home made pies you can eat. All for $12.
You can see Mary peeking over the bar counter - she cut all he pies for us. And you can see Phyllis in the top photo checking out the salads for replenishing.
It makes for a long and tiring 5 days but well worth it.
