The Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church held their annual Chicken BBQ last week, and the community came out in droves after a couple of years with no BBQ due to the pandemic.

Between take-outs and those who dined at the church, more than 300 dinners were served, bringing in upwards of $4600 for the annual fundraiser. It was great to see so many friends and neighbors, including Cal Jamieson, whose daughter Krista brought him out from Orchard Creek for the event.

A big thank-you to everyone who worked so hard to make this year’s event happen, including fearless team leader Pat Sharpnack, the Old Mission Legion Hall for loaning us their roasters, and all the church members and community volunteers who showed up to help and donated funds for chicken and supplies. Here are a few photos…

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
