Judy Martin led the noon church service while the band Wyoming Red played for the services and the following barbecue. The services were held outside, so that people could eat in the cool shade of the church.

Max Borino and Tom Filkins are part of the boning crew - not that there was much to bone - the meat fell right off of the bones. Gary Endecott and Bill Saunders were also part of this team. Working the barbecue is a family affair for many involved in the annual event.

The beef, donated by the Campbell family and Wagstaff Ranches, was cooked in a huge pit, which the volunteer meat crew, Eric Schneider, Mort Yoakum, Jake Filkins, Joe Lincoln III and Tony Saunders, uncovers, enveloping the area with the savory smell of cooked beef. Flowers were donated by CK Nurseries, Kim and Marlene Stratton, firewood was donated by Tom Clover.
