was celebrated August 28th with a Free BBQ & Resource Fair in the South Park Blocks.

Potluck’s 20th Birthday Bash was a huge success thanks to the efforts of over 200 volunteers. 1367 ticketed guests enjoyed delicious meals of barbecue ribs, salmon steaks, chicken, burgers, hot dogs and cake and ice cream.  Many businesses, professional organizations and service agencies donated their time, energy and outreach.  The resource faire included: 100 eye examinations, 96 pairs of happy feet were treated, 61 bikes repaired, 262 gallons and 500 cans of pet food were distributed, 200 guests completed a health screening and free haircuts were given to 54 people.  Thank you to everyone!
