The HBA had a great meeting last night in spite of the extremely high temperatures. The turn out for parking lot party was amazing. We also had some amazing guests with us. The Codes Officials were here earlier in the afternoon to discuss the implementation of the 2015 Code. Jerry Glover and Gary Splawn are always available to help us and answer our questions. We so appreciate these two fine men.
Ty Cheek....Ty Cheek...and Homer...and Mark....these guys never disappoint with their "best smoked chicken you've ever had" and side dishes. I've got a feeling this is the reason so many people were willing to brave the weather.
We also were honored by the presence of Sheriff Chuck Wright. Mustan Kapasi introduced the Sheriff and presented him with a PAC check from the HBASC PAC. Thanks to Mustan for making this happen.
Next up was Shawn Parker of H.O.P.E Ministries. Parker Champion brought this Ministry to our attention as we were exploring possibilities for an August HBA volunteer day. Please watch the
You Tube Video of Shawn and a couple of his residents. You are sure to be inspired to step in and help frame a house for them on Friday, August 12.
Finally....and very important....our sponsor, Norbord and Craig Doehner. Craig , at my insistence, went to great lengths to find the washer games; went out of his way to pick them up; brought a fabulour door prize; sponsored the evening; and was an all around great sport and gracious host. Even if none of you played the washer game!
