On what would have been Lisa’s 65th birthday, we invite you to her celebration of life.

Enjoy pulled pork sandwiches and our best attempt at Lisa’s famous Hee Hee potatoes. Some beverages will be provided (soda, lemonade, water, and beer), but if you want something specific, bring your favorite flavor.

Children are welcome, and assuming Cottonwood Park isn’t flooded, there should be ample room for them to play. We look forward to seeing everyone at this celebration!
