“What a great weekend. In its 3rd year, 359 people attended the Bayshore Baptist Church Neighborhood Block Party & BBQ. There are so many people who worked for months to make the event a success, it was a privilege to be a part of it.
“Special thanks to our friends at the Outdoor Kitchen Store in Tampa, Smoke Shack BBQ on Westshore, and to Master Purveyors. Ray Lampe (Dr. BBQ) thanks for your encouragement and advice over the years.
After picking up the protiens on Thrusday and unloading the Big Green Eggs on Friday, we started prepping at 5:00pm on Friday, finished and left the parking lot at 9:00pm on Saturday. Tim, Will, Tom, Jon, Tanker, and Ron, you guys are awesome and I look forward to doing it again next year….but not before.”
Jerry and the church staff also wish to extend special thanks to Ms. Annie, John Becker and the kitchen crew, Karen Hegemeier, Kim Hoffman, Shawnie Green, Angel McMellin, Kelly Borst, and all the other amazing volunteers and leaders who made this event possible! Thanks as well to all of our community sponsors and to the small groups who donated raffle prizes, cakes, and time. What an amazing weekend! Pictures from the event will be posted soon.
