Brothers, our 7th annual Brunswick Stew Fundraiser (2018) was a huge success.  We produced 455 quarts
of stew in 3 pots and raised money that will help support our various Chapter events.

We had tremendous help again this year.  We prepped and cooked 1 pot during the day Friday
(a big thank you to Mark Chapman, Bob Coughlin, Joe Craddock, Ken Daniels, and Susan Garner)
and then the other 2 pots Friday evening into Saturday morning and were done with packaging those
pots and by 3:30am.

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

- Mark Chapman and Bob/Braeden Coughlin as our top sellers of 60 and 40 quarts of Sehwastew respectively
- Tyler Smith for serving as our youth chair for the Brunswick Stew event
- The following individuals who stayed up all night stirring the 2 pots of Stew and had
a great night of fellowship working together, watching several movies, and playing some games):

Scouts -
Troop 19 - Sam Brown, Jack Casey, Chase Hensley
Troop 42 - Aidan Gough, Gabe Montalbano, Daniel Owens, Tyler Smith
Troop 70 - Bobby Olson, Steven Olson, Justin Cobb, Elijah Hill Pfeffer, Kelvin Rattley

Another huge thanks to Joe Craddock for his tireless efforts in organizing Sehwastew 2019.
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, and head Stewmaster.  You ROCK!

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