The 17th Annual Camp Fantastic Barbecue

Photos by Carla Garnett

The 17th annual Camp Fantastic barbecue and raffle, held June 15 by the Recreation & Welfare Association, raised about $3,000 for Special Love Inc., which hosts the camp each year. As picnickers wait in the food line, they were entertained by the band Street Life, and by fellow attendees who performed an impromptu country line dance.

Fare from Down Under: The Outback Steakhouse joined forces with R&W for the first time at this year's picnic. As a result, the "barbie chook and bacon sandwich" may become an event tradition.

More than 50 volunteer workers helped make the annual barbecue successful. Above (from l) Bob Bingamon, Charles Butler and Agnes Richardson, sell raffle tickets. Prizes included two round-trip domestic airline fares, a mini vacation in the Poconos, French cooking classes, gift certificates for merchandise at area retailers and tickets to various local amusement parks and sports events.
