Feeding the homeless

The Gluttons spent last Thursday evening at Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Soulard cooking and serving food to 121 homeless people of St. Louis.  Dave and Deb Heacock coordinated the effort on behalf of the Club.  We purchased the food and several guys spent a couple evenings beforehand cooking and getting ready to put it all together for Thursday night. 

Witchs brew

Those who served were, Dave and Deb, along with Dan Sucich, Kurt Mirth, Gerard Pfeffer, Larry Green, Ray Staples, Jon & Pat Heacock, Joe Rieker, Andy Green, Luis Martinez, Vince Heacock and Buck Rowberry.

Creature feature gets glowing review

Rilla1
A gorilla about 30 foot high towered over the patio on Friday night at the Glutton Park Balloon Glow.  The beast known as Kurt Kong was secured and didn’t break loose of his restraints.  Lighted balloons were set adrift throughout the evening until one went into the big cedar next to the house.  Had the tree caught fire we would have been able to build an even bigger deck and patio with the insurance proceeds.  A well behaved crowd enjoyed the music, trivia and goose head beer (or something like that) and duck fries along with other delicacies that party goers brought.  Excellent job by Pat B, Kurt M and their Mary little elves.

Pignic Pleasures

Gluttons 2010

A great time was had by all at the 40th Glutton Memorial Day Pignic.  We dedicated the memorial bricks for our departed members (the dead ones) and we dined on some really great food cooked by Chef Dan and his crew.  I think this was only about the third or fourth Pignic where it didn’t rain.  The temperature was in the upper 80’s and the pool was great!  (Click on the pics below to enlarge.)
