Fort Ward Labor Day BBQ was a sunny success

Thanks to all the Fort Ward neighbors who made our Labor Day “block party” barbecue such a great success!

Folks came from all around the Fort Ward historic district, sharing tasty dishes and hanging out for conversation, kids’  games and a wildly popular ping-pong table (thanks, Stephen Streufert!) through a splendidly sunny holiday afternoon. bbq12

Our new Friends of Fort Ward T-shirts were the fashion statement of the day, as we nearly sold out our first run of 50 shirts and hoodies. Drop us an email at to see if we still have one in your size, or to get your name on the list for our next order. All proceeds go to the Fort Ward Community Hall project.bbq18

We’ve posted a full slideshow of the BBQ event on our social media page, and you can see all the photos by clicking on this link right here. Thanks to Kate for the great shots!
