Traditionally, the 4th Saturday in September is a time to get out and attend the Bluffton Fall Festival. This year however, the Fall Festival has been suspended due to Coronavirus concerns. So this means The Service Group will not be selling homemade food, or hosting a bake sale or auction at Mennonite Memorial Home this year. Instead, we are inviting you to come out and have some delicious Chicken BBQ at Bubba C. BBQ.
Proceeds of the MHCO Service Group BBQ Fundraiser will support the purchase of a new handicap accessible van to help elders attend area doctors’ appointments and family related trips that would not otherwise be possible. The current 2012 handicap accessible van is well used and needs to be replaced. The Service Group has pledged $10,000 to help cover the cost. In many cases, medical transport is not covered by insurance, so by providing our own transportation it makes it more affordable for residents. This program is possible thanks to the many MHCO volunteer drivers.
Tickets are $8.00 apiece and may be purchased through September 20 from Service Group members of Emmanuel Church of Christ, English Lutheran, Ebenezer, First Mennonite, Grace, St John’s Mennonite, St John’s United Church of Christ, and St Mary’s Catholic Church. For more information, or to purchase a ticket, email Val @ firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text Ruth @ 567-204-9232.
Meal curb side pickup will be Saturday, September 26th from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at Bubba C. BBQ, 158 N. Jackson Street in Bluffton.
