Hotdish Hoedown 2002

Thanks to everyone for attending the Hotdish Hoedown. We set records for attendance (120 people, including the soon-to-be toddlers in abundance), and beer and wine consumption. The food was fabulous, and oh, the singing. Not to mention the Tale of William Jell. Thanks to the set-up and take-down crews. 2002 invitation
