Summer BBQ 2019

Updated: Nov 25, 2019

This will be a post about the Summer BBQ

Many things have changed since Palmer Scholars first started supporting Pierce County youth in 1983. Alumni lovingly remember receiving their yearly invitation from Merle to their summer dinner, held in the basement of the University Place Presbyterian Church. The dinner was a time for food, fun, and fellowship. Merle introduced Scholars to mentors he met in the supermarket and welcomed his friends to join in celebrating the Scholars who graduated just a few weeks before. All these years later, we still hold true to Merle’s tradition.


Last Sunday, we spent the day at the beautiful Manitou Park, feasting on Mr. Texas Smokehouse BBQ's amazing spread, introducing potential mentors with our Scholars, and playing very intense games of giant jenga.

Last Sunday, we spent the day at the beautiful Manitou Park, feasting on Mr. Texas Smokehouse BBQ's amazing spread, introducing potential mentors with our Scholars, and playing very intense games of giant jenga. Scholars, their families, board members, staff, mentors, and potential mentors enjoyed the sun and one of the rare opportunities to connect. Truly, the pictures show it all!


We want to thank Mr. Texas Smokehouse BBQ for the tasty mac and cheese, ribs, and beans, WorkSource for taking time out of their weekend to share resources with our Scholars and their families, and Sound Credit Union for sponsoring this event! Our operations throughout the year connect us as an organization, but our Summer BBQ and Mid-Year Kickback are what connect us all as a family.
