At The Fountains at Greenbriar, we’re getting all fired up for this year’s Annual Blaze-Off and Senior-Q! If you think this summer is sizzling, then you won’t want to miss the smokin’ hot flavors and fall fun on October 18TH and 19TH.
The Fountains, an independent living retirement community, has hosted this bbq competition for the past six years in observance of Senior-Q Month. As with previous years, the feel-good food and conversation between generations promises to be a delight for bbq folks and residents alike.
Friday night features a dessert competition and happy hour. Enjoy a beverage or two while swapping stories with our residents at the happy hour. During this time, team members can purchase raffle tickets for a large-screen TV and/or a quilt, made by one of our Greenbriar residents.
On Saturday, teams will turn their prize meats in starting at 11 a.m. for judging by members of the KCBS. The winners will be announced at 3:30 p.m. that day. Then it’s on to the gut-busting (and some say best!) part of this unique competition. We’re serving up your savory meats with sides, dessert, and drinks from 4 to 6 p.m.
We can’t wait to see some familiar faces and make new friends too at this fifth and favorite annual event! So save the date, and get ready to fire up those grills in Independence. To register or for a complete schedule of The Fountains Blaze-Off and Senior-Q, contact Megan Hollar at MHollar@WatermarkCommunities.com.
We look forward to hosting our annual Blaze Off & Senior Q this year, and hosting a fabulous BBQ dinner for our residents following this event. We have purchased brisket for this. Please let us know if you would be willing to cook up some extra BBQ for us to serve our amazing residents. This has been a huge hit each year. They love dining on the best BBQ in the world right here in their home at The Fountains at Greenbriar and look forward to this event all year long.
Our residents will once again be holding a raffle this year. They have another quilt, and are planning to purchase another big screen TV to raffle off. Our reps for this year’s contest will be Phil & Rosemary Morrow. They’ve done such a fabulous job for us in the past and they truly love participating in our Senior Q with our many residents.
We have a new Blaze Off organizer who is having fun with her new challenge. Her name is Meg and she can most readily be reached at MHollar@WatermarkCommunities.com. . She looks forward to hearing from you.
To those of you who will be competing here this year, thank you for helping our residents THRIVE!
