Each year Big Canoe’s Chapel honors the community’s 200 or so employees with a fall appreciation luncheon. This year the Tuesday, Oct. 24 event had an added twist.

Property owners also wanted to say thank you to the employees for all the days they spent hard at work cleaning up Hurricane Irma’s devastation in Big Canoe. The word went out—through social media—for the community to add its own thank you by extending the chapel’s Bigguns barbecue menu with an endless variety of appetizers and desserts.

Property owners signed up to stand in the road to collect appetizers and desserts at the entrance to the Broyles Center where the luncheon was served. Others volunteered to help serve and clean up after the event.

The employees found a variety of appetizers from dips to finger foods awaiting them. After plates full of barbeque, Brunswick stew and all the trimmings, they found tables filled to the edges with nearly any sweet one could think of or want.

Those who manned the gates, clubhouse kitchen staff, cart barn employees and others who could not leave their job were not left out of the event. Boxes of food were distributed to every employee in Big Canoe.

Employees’ enthusiastic comments after indulging in a plateful of barbecue and many desserts were preceded with groans of pleasure before words of thanks.
