It was wonderful to be back in business after a three year layoff. It took a lot of hard work to knock all the rust and dust from everything, but it was done. We wish to thank the BBQ Committee for all their work preparing, planning, and implementing everything that needed to happen to make it so. Chairpersons Charles Kimrey and Bill Wood did an outstanding job orchestrating and organizing the preparation and the event itself. We also wish to thank the scores of volunteers who came out to offer time, muscle, and effort. Without their support, none of this could have happened. It was great to feel the Mallard Creek community come together, work together, laugh together, serve together, and simply be together. We are already looking forward to next year, the 92nd edition of the Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church Barbecue.
However, we at Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church were overwhelmed by the public response to our barbecue. After a long pause due to COVID, we are gratified that so many wanted to be a part of the restored event. But as with all restarts, we were not able to meet the demand that presented itself. We sold out our barbecue and Brunswick stew much faster than we anticipated. While it was wonderful that we had so many customers so early in the day, it did mean we had to close sooner than expected. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused but know we will be making changes as we look ahead to the 92nd Edition of the barbecue, looking for ways of increasing our production for all the hungry people. Maybe you would like to be part of the prep team next year! See you in 2023! In the meantime, if you really want to keep things going, join us for Sunday worship and fellowship at 10 am, in person or online!. It doesn’t have to be once a year! Thank you for your support and your patience.
