Welcome to the Sehwatu Chapter!


Brothers, our 6th annual Brunswick Stew Fundraiser (2018) was a huge success.  We produced 482 quarts
of stew in 3 pots and raised money that will help support our various Chapter events.

We had tremendous help again this year and had to change things up a little with rain in the forecast
overnight.  We prepped and cooked 2 pots during the day (a big thank you to Mark Chapman, Bob Coughlin,
Joe Craddock, Ken Daniels, Casey Smith and Ben Yarborough) and then the third pot Friday evening into
Saturday morning and were done with packaging that pot and cleanup by 3:30am.

We would like to recognize a few who stood out with their efforts:

Bob/Braeden Coughlin and Mark Chapman as our top sellers of 95 and 80 quarts of Sehwastew respectively
- Braeden Coughlin for serving as our youth chair for the Brunswick Stew event
- The following individuals who stayed up all night stirring the last pot of Stew and had
a great night of fellowship working together (and watching several movies):

Scouts -
Troop 19 - Vaughn Bolt
Troop 23 - Chance Nisley, Matthew Parks, Samuel Parks, Casey Smith
Troop 42 - Aidan Gough, Gabe Montalbano
Troop 51 - Andrew Ayers

Another huge thanks to Joe Craddock for his tireless efforts in organizing Sehwastew 2018.
Joe continues to be the heart and soul of this endeavor with several days of prep leading up to
the event, countless trips to Hopewell Presbyterian, food purchase, ticket/money management,
and head Stewmaster.  You ROCK!

Thank you to all who sold tickets or helped in any way with the event.
