2008 Senior Q

October 26, 2008

Senior Q - Nebraska 2008

Operation BBQ for our Troops MW Division adopted the idea of Senior Q into its mission for the month of October and got the Governor of Nebraska to proclaim the month of October officially "Senior Q" month.
Operation BBQ for our Troops MW Division is currently made up of two competition teams (Roo B Q'n - Tom and Char Manhart and We'll Smoke U - Scott and Jackie Burke) as well as some other bbq fanatics (Annie and Dave Bougger).
Our first feed occurred on what turned out to be a very blustery October day (10/26), we provided the noon meal for the Eastern Nebraska Veterans Home in Bellevue Nebraska. 150 meals were served to Veterans , family members and the staff of the home as a way of saying Thank you to our aging Veterans and all those that help and love them in their remaining life's journey.
Pork shoulder or Pulled Chicken sandwiches, baked beans, coleslaw and various desserts were served by the board of Operation BBQ along with some friends and their children in support of the mission. We served and helped with meals over a 3 hour period and met some wonderful people, many that have left their mark on us for quite some time to come.
Later that week, another feed was held in the Valley NE VFW for about 75 Veterans and families. The menu and the smiles continued from earlier in the week. This time the servers were local high school students working on service hours and school projects to understand and appreciate the impact these men and women have had on our lives.

Thanks to the board of Operation BBQ, friends, staff members of both facilities and the donations of many others to make these two events possible.
Respectfully submitted
