In years past, on the second Friday and Saturday,
Wesley UMC had the annual Hog Roast. The hog is prepared "like they
used to", from hoof to table.
This was a very educational experience for young
and old. This process showed that meat doesn't come from the grocery store. Grandma didn't buy crisco;
she cooked lard from the hog, resulting in cracklin's. Today's pork rinds at the store are actually imitations
of the cracklin's from the old rendering pot.
Unfortunately, this community event no longer takes place.
But we all have wonderful memories of it!
