Your Guide to Fun
The Perfect Surrounding
This year’s Bean Hole Bash will be held between the Northwood Congregational Church and Coe-Brown Northwood Academy. There’s handicap parking, ample parking for motor homes and campers. Golf cart transportation is available too! Please leave your pets at home.
Fine Food is Homemade!
When it comes to fine food you just can’t beat homemade. The beans are slow cooked for nearly 24 hours. There’s corn on the cob, rolls, Mike’s Pulled Pork sandwiches, the best homemade pies anywhere and so much more!
Horseshoe Tournament with Cash Prizes
Nothing like a little friendly competition to keep things going and this year’s Horseshoe Tournament will be no different. The first ringer should be hitting the stake Friday evening when the burying of the beans begins. The beans and competition will really start heating up as the evening goes on.You didn’t hear it from me; rumor has it, a team of young ringers are coming in to show them old boys how the game is really played! “There will be $cash$ prizes too”
End 68 Hours of Hunger
Mike & Betty Smith and Commitment to our Community
The challenge is on!
5 area businesses are teaming up and will be matching funds raised up to $200 each, all of which will be donated to End 68 Hours of Hunger.
Their combined match could easily provide an additional $1000, to this very worthy cause for at-risk children in our community.
Your job is simple
On Friday evening, July 26th, enjoy a pulled pork sandwich at the Bean Hole Bash knowing that you’re helping others.
