Help Support Old Mission Gazette, a reader-supported newspaper covering the Old Mission Peninsula

The annual NMC BBQ took place yesterday, May 22, 2016, and served a grand total of 7,678 people. It’s a great community event that really harks back to a bygone era of picnics, fun and tasty barbecued buffalo burgers.

The late Gerald W. Oleson and his wife Frances, founders of Oleson’s Food Stores in Traverse City, started the annual fundraiser picnic in 1956. Oleson’s Food Stores continue to donate the food, and hundreds of volunteers turn out to make the event happen.

Here are a few photos from the event, including my nephew, Garrett Boursaw, and a neighbor, Jeanne Snow, who lives just down the road from me. Isn’t it amazing how I manage to zone in on the Old Mission people at the event? I have Old Mission radar. 🙂
