Cousins from as far away as Reno, Nevada, as well as most of the local relatives enjoyed a fun weekend. It began Friday night with Ab Woods cooking homemade stew, corn bread and cobbler for the group while the kids roasted wieners and marshmallows over the fire pit. On Saturday, everyone enjoyed a lunch of barbecue brisket, chicken and sausage prepared by Joe Hobbs and Tee Joe Marks and lots of other dishes brought by those in attendance. The weather was beautiful for the weekend and plans are under way for next October’s get-together.
