Yesterday, the Washies had plenty of food fun and games available for the crowd of 60,000 people in attendance. As a place with seating for our patrons, we have never disappointed the people in our home cooking. By 8 pm, we sold out of food! In recent years past, we have been unable to do this. The big hitter this year was our Sno Kone & Cotton Candy stand! During the day, the line would hit 15-20 people deep just to wait. We appreciate the support from the community as this was our most SUCCESSFUL Jubilee Day ever for the Washies! We thank everyone who came out and supported us throughout the day. We look forward to seeing you next year.
Just after the “lunch rush'” ABC27’s Meteorologist Ryan Coyle stopped by the firehouse to check on the local food. The crew from ABC27 then videotapped our line workers, interviewed our Vice President Doug Hench and ultimately featured our Master Cook, President Ron Trace cooking our Chicken Corn Soup on kettles. Thank you to ABC27 for stopping by, we appreciate the coverage! You can check out the video here: http://www.abc27.com/video?clipId=9013324&autostart=true
A big thank you to all the members who put countless hours in for Jubilee Day. Jubilee Day for us is not just a one day event. It takes many days before and the days after to prepare, setup, clean and put away all the things we do for just one day. Again, thank you to all of our members and families for the time spent putting into this 1 day event!
