Today our jammers celebrated their 15th Anniversary. Our Winter Ranch Country Jam was formed February 8, 2001 by Ross and Sheryl Craft, Don and Jean Countryman, Jack Bailey, Wayne Strickland, Maggie Moody, and Don and Pam Hoppe. Crafts and Countrymen’s made all the food for lunch and asked RGV jammers to come and perform. Ross Craft is still the Coordinator of the Jam although the luncheon is coordinated by the Activity Department with volunteer crews who prepare the weekly meals.

Our Kitchen Jam Crew hard at work. The Can-Am Team was on board for this jam headed by Kathy Doddridge. They had a wild day with a very large crowd today but they managed to do an excellent job. Our menu today was cheesy broccoli soup, a hamburger or brat with chips, potato salad and a dessert or chicken salad on a croissant with chips and dessert.
