You bring a meat of choice (steak, fish chicken, etc.) and a beverage of choice (leaded or unleaded).  We provide a salad, bread, and baked potato.  We ask that you bring a suggested donation of $10 which helps offset costs BUT also helps raise money for important mission projects.  So, please join us, hang out and make a difference.
