The Valley Line: St. Bede community dons Western duds, lines up for barbecue at 66th birthday celebration

It was hoedown fun when St. Bede the Venerable Catholic Church held its 66th annual birthday party celebration.

The Old West was recreated in the St. Bede School parking lot and playground with hay bales and games for kids and adults alike.

One of the most popular activities for the kids was the pony rides, while the adults laughed as they took turns on the mechanical bull.

More than 800 people came for the festivities, which also included live music and line dancing activities. It is truly a family affair — moms and dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins galore. There were so many little kids — from babes in arms to teens joining the fun.

Joyfully...
