Pickin’ & Ribs – Saturday, March 6, 2021

The Lylewood Christian Camp Board of Directors is pleased to announce the details for our 5th Annual “Pickin’& Ribs” Fundraiser Dinner which is scheduled for Saturday, March 6th, 2021.  Like so many other events amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, our event will be much different this year.

The carry-out dinner plan that we have developed is as follows: Three of our local sponsoring congregations have graciously agreed to serve as drive-through locations in which to pick-up your carry-out plate dinner. Freshly prepared meals will be assembled from these locations.


They are: The Church of Christ at Trenton Crossing (Montgomery County), Erin Church of Christ (Houston County), and Pegram Church of Christ (Cheatham County).  Additionally, pre-boxed meals will be delivered to Bumpus Mills Church of Christ for pickup there. Upon purchasing your tickets, please indicate which pick-up location you prefer.  Pick-up times will be the same at each location:  5:00 pm to 6:30 pm.  As always, the food will be hot at pickup and the portions will be generous!  The menu will be similar to prior years:  

Meat choice:   smoked ribs, smoked chicken, or baked ham
Cobbler choice:  chocolate or peach cobbler (no ice cream)
Sides:  baked beans, potato salad, rolls

This year’s entertainment will be available via YouTube, and will feature a special musical guest (more details to be announced in a few weeks).  Although we sincerely wish an in-person performance could be hosted this year, we feel that this is the next best option in order to keep our Lylewood family healthy and safe.  Traditionally, Lylewood has been able to provide musical entertainment showcasing current and veteran performers familiar with the Nashville scene, and this year will be no exception!

Tickets are on sale now through Tuesday, February 23rd, and are available through any of our eleven (11) board members, or online at lylewood.org.  Our individual plate dinners will still be priced at $25.00 each for carry-out only and provided in a drive-through style.   Perhaps you have been a “table” sponsor (8 seats) in the past?   If so, you might use some creativity this year by delivering a delicious carry-out plate to your “table” guests or having a small group meal in your home.   In any event, thanks for helping us to make the best of our circumstances. 

It is our intention and prayer to make this year’s “Pickin’ & Ribs” just as successful as all preceding years, and the Lylewood Christian Camp Board of Directors is counting on our network of alumni campers and staff, sponsoring congregations, and corporate partners to pledge your support for 2021.

We look forward to your continued patronage of “Pickin’ & Ribs” on March 6th, and we are extremely grateful for both your financial and prayerful support of our beloved ministry!

VOLUNTEER: We could use a few additional volunteers to help with food prep and carry out work to be sure everything is a big success. It would be an honor to have you partner with us. If you will extend your time and talent, please complete the online volunteer form to let us know.
