Weekend Recap – BBQ, Honoring Vets & Sweet Rides

Post contributed by Brittany Thomas – Coordinator, External Affairs

Last weekend was so full of events, it took us until Thursday to have all of the photos uploaded!

Armed Forces Day Parade - Scranton

The Chocolate & Wine Festival is a wonderful event for more than the obvious reasons (chocolate & wine) but because the proceeds from the day go to benefit local nonprofits and scholarships. Cabot helped to sponsor the event which featured local wineries, chocolatiers, live music, crafts, a cupcake war and a BBQ contest.

I’m proud to say that this year Cabot came home with the gold in the BBQ contest – winning not just the Judge’s Choice Award for the tastiest ribs but also the People’s Choice Award! Congratulations and a huge thank you to Cabot’s BBQ Master Jerry Dugas and to his apprentice chef Kevin Dawson.

SSDHHC Annual Car Show - Clarks Summit

The Scranton School for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children (SSDHHC) hosted its 10th Annual Car Show to benefit the school and got quite a turnout of automobiles. The CNG powered 1955 Chevy was also there for the show and drew quite a crowd from the car enthusiasts present.

Be sure to check out all of the amazing vehicles present on our Flickr site.
