The Mendenhall Flying Lions Club completed their 15th annual Diabetes Barbecue and Auction on Nov. 6. We would like to send a thank you to all of the generous people who showed up to participate in either the barbecue or the auction. The ribs were again a hit, selling out early, and the auction showed the tremendous support from both the donors and bidders.
G. W. Teal allowed us to use their premises and provided the support to make this event possible. Thanks to Teddy's Tasty Meats (Anchorage) for the donation of the ribs, Alaska Airlines for the shipping, the Juneau Pioneer Home for the use of their kitchen in the preparation of the ribs and Food Services of America and Super Bear for their food contributions. Thanks also to the Southeast Panhandlers MC for the use of their smoker.
