Eating delicious food was an all-day affair, as well as volleyball, bocce ball, baggo, practicing golf swings and just relaxing while visiting with friends and neighbors.

There was bingo, bidding on silent auction items and a raffle on items donated by area businesses. Much of the money raised was donated to charitable organizations. A collection was made of food items and distributed to area food pantries.
