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…
