WESTERN SHOREFEST 2022 in the “WILD WILD WEST” was such a fun neighborhood party! We kicked off the event with a Kiddie parade of young cowboys and cowgirls wearing hats and riding pool noodle ponies that the activity group made. HOA President, Mike Jacobson led the group of cow pokes around the block with his trusty ATV pulling a wagon with the wooden calf he made. While the parade was going on, Cyndy Dyrnes was teaching a group of ladies a line dance. And then the party began. The band, “Go Johnny Go” featuring Shorecrest’s James Harlan, started playing and the dancers started dancing. The waterslide was set up for the adventuresome, the saloon for the thirsty and the chow line for the hungry.
We had some great food that included pulled pork and shredded smoked chicken from “Flaming Pig BBQ” in Tumwater. Besides delicious sliders, the menu included mac ‘n cheese, baked beans, corn on the cob, hotdogs, coleslaw, macaroni salad, watermelon and for desserts Monster cookies, rice Krispie bars, and fantastic peach cobblers. For the night owls, the party continued at the pool with country western music and a late-night swim. Thank you to all the wonderful Shorecrest Volunteers! Many hours were spent preparing, pulling it all together for the day and then cleaning it all up after the party was over. Be sure to check out the photo gallery for fun photos taken that day. Hope everyone had a good time!
