More RAGBRAI pics plus music video!

Here are some more RAGBRAI pics from our Watermelon booth & Spaghetti Supper last Monday. Again, thanks to our WHOLE church family for making this a huge success. It really was like our Soup and Pie Supper on steroids! 🙂

Only our kitchen crew would have fun serenading our RAGBRAI guests while they were served their spaghetti supper. Here’s a short bit of “On top of Spaghetti, All covered with Cheese!” Hope UMC really is the best!! 🙂

We did it!!!!!!

We did it! We survived RAGBRAI and provided a great outreach to the thousands of people who came through our town! We started with the Breakthrough group serving watermelon, followed by our church serving a spaghetti supper, and then finishing with a pancake breakfast this morning sponsored again by the Breakthrough group.

We served 1, 250 RAGBRAI riders a spaghetti supper and lived to tell about it! A HUGE thanks to everyone who helped with this enormous project! A special thanks to the dining room and kitchen servers who worked non-stop the entire evening! There will be more pictures of the day coming, so keep checking back. Thanks for being the hands and feet of Christ to our overnight guests!
