After a long social gathering drought, family, friends and neighbors were elated to come together for an evening of fellowship.
The Mansfield/Huntington Area Chamber of Commerce hosted a Community Cookout on Saturday evening, April 24 at 5 p.m. Hamburgers and hotdogs, chips, drink, and a homemade dessert were on the menu. Grill masters Mansfield Fire Chief Michael Smith and Huntington Mayor Gary Lawrence fed the hungry crowd. Volunteers such as Margaret Mergen offered up some delicious homecooked desserts that finished off the fine meal.
Live music was provided by the group Nickeltown Road, who performed a variety of music including gospel and country.
Perhaps the most enjoyable act of the evening, the gathering together. The sounds of laughter and reminiscence filled the dining room of the Mansfield Senior Center.
Door prizes of homemade jellies and jams, and car cleaning products were given away courtesy of Mergen and Cherokee Tire.
Monies raised from the event will go toward funding the fireworks purchase for the Fourth of July fireworks display.
A special thanks to all those who attended. Also to Sharon McDaniel and Angie Brown, and to all those who worked so hard to make the event a success.
