In addition to some interesting community events, ranging from the opening reception for new exhibits at Beeville Art Museum to a pet adoption clinic at the Beeville Animal Shelter to the Swinney Switch Volunteer Fire Department spring bazaar, are a couple of meals we can heartily recommend.
On Saturday, the First United Methodist Church will celebrate its first anniversary of offering The Table. This fellowship kitchen, presented as a gift of love to the community, prepares a hot meal every third Saturday of the month from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Pastor Larry McRorey said that chefs are putting together a delicious casserole and the usual fun and fellowship await those attending; last month The Table attracted about 125 people. Again, this is open to the public without charge.
Then on Sunday, right across the street, the Beeville Volunteer Fire Department will deliver plates of mouth-watering barbecued chicken and all the trimmings to hundreds of area residents.
A longtime tradition and a wonderful cause, this event is a major fundraiser for the BVFD, with plates costing only $6 apiece.
The firefighters will greet and serve the post-church crowd and others who start lining up in their vehicles at the C.M. “Smitty” Smith Central Fire Station at City Hall at 11 a.m. and will continue serving until 2 p.m.
Ladies Auxiliary members also will sell tasty homemade cakes during the event at $5 each.
So, Bee Countians, be generous and support your amazing fire department. At some point, we all may frantically need their services.
