Every year for the last 10 years FC3 has had a Harvest Hoedown. Our whole Small Town World is invited to the campus for games and food and fun.
Don’t you love the clowns? They’re a hoot, even if I did get splashed with a little squirt gun play. No fair. I didn’t have a gun so I could shoot back!
We have a train and ponies for the kids to ride, a big bouncy slide for kids of all sizes!
David Cook and his wife, Jan, make about fifty pounds of chili for us each year.
Larry Brown grills about a jillion wieners,
and somebody else melts gallons and gallons of cheese.
But the best job? The most fun of all? Serving the food and drinks! (My job.) While we serve, we get to talk to people we sometimes see only that one time a year, and catch up a little. We see kiddos and costumes, we see babies and babies who aren’t babies anymore.
Some of us get a little cold, a few backs get a little stiff, but if at all possible, we don’t miss this get together. At least I don’t. It’s just fun to get to be with friends and neighbors and God as the central reason for it all.
The Harvest Hoedown is the best hoedown of all! Of course, it’s the only hoedown I’ve ever been to. How about you? Ever been to a hoedown? What did you like best?
