Senior Q Project

October is Officially "Senior Q" Month Get fired up!

Attention all people who love to cook, and all people who respect their elders. In an effort to raise public awareness of our elderly, the Kansas City Barbeque Society, the National BBQ News, and the Iowa Barbeque Society have joined hands in declaring October "Senior Q" month"

Why are we doing this? The answer is simple. To raise awareness of the importance of our elderly as a national treasure. To let them know that's how we feel about them. In short, to let them know we still care. If we make one person smile, the effort was worth it. If we make one thousand people smile, it was history.

The concept is a simple one. Show people that later in life they are still important to us, using BBQ as our "canvas". It doesn't matter if its' an individual, or a group of people that are recognized. It doesn't matter if its' an individual, or a group of people that are giving the recognition. It does matter that the recognition is given!

We need your help. We are asking for volunteers from across the Nation (and Globe) to participate. Any Group, Organization, Team, Company, or Individual will be welcome to cook. Any selected Senior Citizen Individual, Group, or Organization will be the target recipient. Be creative. Work with Nursing Homes, Care Facilities, Meals on Wheels, or the Widow down the street who lives alone. The sky is the limit. Coordinate your efforts to get family members involved. Get sponsors involved, organizations involved, or just do it alone.

When you figure out your goal, make it happen. Document your ideas, thoughts, actions, and follow through. Take a few digital photos. . Then compose your own article based on your experience. Mention sponsors, volunteers, anybody you want that assisted. Be careful to protect the integrity of the seniors you are representing, their family, and those trying to assist them at this stage of life. In return, we will give you coverage for your efforts, guaranteed! And what better time for this coverage than in the December issues of BOTH the KCBS Bullsheet, and the National BBQ News!

Recognition will be given at the 2016 KCBS Awards Program to the effort that is deemed the most worthy (as deemed by the KCBS, National Barbecue News, and the Iowa Barbeque Society). So, whether alone or with a group, work out the details, and fire up those smokers!

All articles need to be submitted to Mike Tucker no later than NOVEMBER 5, 2016 Email them at sales@tntlandscaping.com or call him toll free at 1-877-841-7192 with any questions.
