Chicken BBQ and Basket Raffle Info

This year our annual chicken BBQ will be Saturday, July 9th from 3-7PM. Dinners will cost $14/each and there will be no presale dinner tickets. We are having “old style” affair with dinners served both for on-site and drive thru. 

We are having a new raffle item this year, a pair of seats to Shea’s Theatre. These are center stage, including opening night, seven touring performances. Raffle tickets are being sold for $5 each or $20 for 5. We need everyone’s support in selling these prior to the BBQ. See Marge Schlau for tickets.

Anyone wishing to sponsor a veteran’s dinner for $10 should put their donation in the collection plate in a separate envelope.

There will be a sign-up sheet in the foyer BBQ helpers.

There is a sign-up sheet in the foyer for basket makers.

The taping party for the July fourth parade will be July 2nd after the 9AM service.

We need 6 volunteers to post flyers at local businesses on Grand Island. Each route has only 15-20 stops and can be done in an hour or so. See Mark Korzelius if you can help or sign up on the board. Flyers should be distributed between now and June 25th.


The Basket Raffle Committee has been busy collecting donations from local area businesses. Now it’s your turn to step up to the plate. We are hoping to hit a home run with this year’s Basket Auction. We have two tiers of baskets this year. The first one is $25 to $75. The second tier is above $75. 

There is a sign up sheet for basket donations in the Narthex on the easel. Please put your name, phone number, short description if your basket and what tier it will be in. You can get together with another person or family to put together a basket. 

If you have any questions, please call Amy Heist or Lisa Hoyt. The deadline for handing in baskets at Church is Sunday, June 26th. The baskets will be stored in the choir room. Please deliver them to there. 

Thank you for helping with our Basket Auction!
