Last weekend, both Saturday and Sunday, 10 people volunteered their time to work at Fletcher’s Corny Dog stand at the State Fair of Texas and donate their hourly wages to The Angel House building fund. And this will continue with additional volunteers for the next 3 weekends. On their feet for upwards of 9 hours they served corny dogs and drinks to hungry visitors. Long days no doubt and they did it with huge smiles.

We are so appreciative of their time and support – they have no idea what it means to us as we look forward to breaking ground for the orphanage next March or April. It was fun to call them via Skype while they were working and tell them how much we treasure their support. And … we thought you would like to see a few of the pictures so you could see for yourself the fun they all had during their time spent at the fair.

The day started out with rides on Dart Rail for some of the volunteers. Made it easy to get to the fair and the station was right by the corny dog booth next to Big Tex – the statue that welcomes you to the Fair.

Okay – but just in case the hot dog doesn’t meet the standards it is taken back to these two – Debbie and Joe and they “wash” the hot dog and start over. Who knew that there was even a position for washing hot dogs!
