Fallfest at Waterford a hit
It started out chilly Saturday morning, Oct. 30, but by 9 the sun had warmed up enough for folks at the garage sale in Shaw’s bottom at Waterford to take off a few layers.
Twelve folks joined in for the 5K walk for missions at 7:45 a.m.
The barbecue was ready by 10 and smelling good. The first Waterford Fallfest, sponsored by the Spring Hill Baptist Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) was underway.
There was a baking and canning contest at the Waterford Community Center, an old-fashioned cake walk, a costume contest, live music by SMASH and a catfish dinner. About 100 people were on hand for the catfish, and adults and children had a good time at the costume contest and trunk or treat. Twenty-six door prizes including hanging baskets for next year’s tomatoes and silver dollars were handed out.
All proceeds went to WMU’s home and foreign missions.
Eric and Wade Yeager cooked the catfish while the WMU ladies served dinner.
Musical entertainment was provided by Adam Robinson, Lena Davis, Corey Garner and Jessie Russom, members of Spring Hill Baptist Church’s Christian Rock band SMASH.
