The Fort says they counted more then 21,000 people in attendance in the two days of events. At the height of the day on Saturday it took more than an hour to drive from the stoplight at Kure Beach to the Fort. It really was a pretty amazing weekend.
Our sale of hot dogs, drinks, chips and candy cleared about $2,000. after we donated part of the profit to the Friends of Fort Fisher.
We’d especially like to thank the Board of the Friends of Fort Fisher and the staff of the Fort Fisher State Historic Site for including us in this momentous event.
A huge thanks to the five people who spent the ENTIRE weekend at the Fort, Darlene Bright, Leslie Bright, Demetria Sapienza, Phil Sapienza, and Tony Phillips. They went above and beyond.
Also working in shifts from 2 to 4 hours long were: Cheri McNeill, Paul Slobodnik, Marci Taylor, Don Snook, Sylvia Snook, Byron Moore, Judy Moore, Elaine Henson, Rodney Jones, Rick Both, Pam Bramhall, Ray Bramhall, John Gordon, Jeannie Gordon, Rebecca Taylor, Bob Greenwald.
THANKS ALSO TO Brenda Armes of Olde Salty’s for lending us her humongous grill. We could never have cooked 1320 hot dogs in two days without it!
