So you say 200 people were served 200 hamburgers and 120 hot dogs in 1 hour and 30 minutes?

Must have been some barbecue - and it was, there at Calvin Presbyterian Church on Saturday, August 21, from 4 to 6 pm in their parking lot. Their first time event like this was well organized with a barbecue crew, tables with chips, veggies, dips and condiments, watermelon plus cookies and ice cream.

About a quarter of the members of Tent City 3 joined in and anything left over was given to them, of course. Many wore name badges so it was easy to meet people.

Barb Farden, one of the coordinators, said they received many good comments – they were happy with the attendance and that the church and other folks donated to the meal. She also commented that she received a lot of favorable comments about Tent City with much approval and some even said they were not aware that Tent City was even there.

Music was part of the treat with Ruth Pirie, vocalist and leader plus Jerry Buter and Steve Artley as part of her band called “Sounds of Comfort and Joy.” They were willing to take requests and when she found out I was Swedish, she sang a sweet traditional song to me. Yes, my husband and I will attend again next year.
