Brothers, our 8th annual Brunswick Stew Fundraiser (2020) was a huge success.  We produced 322 quarts
of stew in 2 pots and raised money that will help support our various Chapter events.

We had tremendous help again this year.  We pulled apart chicken, peeled and chopped onions,
and peeled and diced potatoes during our prep party.  We had some pulled pork, baked beans
and chips for dinner.  Then we cooked the 2 pots of stew Friday evening into Saturday morning
and were done with packaging those pots by 3:30am.

We would like to recognize a few who stood out with their efforts:

- Mark Chapman, Joe Craddock and Ben Yarborough as our top sellers
- Liam Walsh for serving as our youth chair for the Brunswick Stew event
- The following individuals who stayed up all night stirring the 2 pots of Stew and had
a great night of fellowship working together, and playing some games):

Scouts -
Crew 19 - Abby Maillet
Troop 19 - Sam Brown, Jack Casey, Liam Walsh
Troop 42 - Michael Busic
Troop 70 - Bobby Olsen, Steven Olsen
Troop 72 - Ian Theisen
Troop 98 - Nathan Bryant, Phillip Malcolm
Troop 323 - Braeden Coughlin

Adults -

District at Large - Joe Craddock, Roger Penny

Another huge thanks to Joe Craddock for his tireless efforts in organizing Sehwastew 2020.
Joe continues to be the heart and soul of this endeavor with several days of prep leading up to
the event, countless trips to Hopewell Presbyterian, food purchase, and head Stewmaster.  You ROCK!

Thank you to all who sold tickets or helped in any way with the event.

Mark February 12-13, 2021 on your calendar for Sehwastew 2021.
