Souvenir tee shirts are available wherever Bondurant Library Restoration Committee members can be found, particularly during regular Library hours, at the BBQ, Heritage Days, Barn Dance, and other BCC gatherings.
Each tee shirt cost a mere $15 donation to the Library restoration. Shirts are made available in sizes Small, Medium, Large, X Large and XX Large.
All proceeds benefit the Bondurant Library's ongoing restoration projects.
2011's tee-shirts commemorate the 70th Annual Bondurant BBQ! That's a lot of tasty cows. The first BBQ was held to celebrate the completion of St. Hubert's church/community center in 1941. In 2011, the community broke endurance records with its 70th consecutive BBQ.
The teeshirts' design resembles an Old West-style poster: "Celebrate 70, Bondurant Bar-B-Que, 1941 - 2011." The shirts are popular among locals and among the Library's friends throughout the country. For example, the Wheelhouse Band's bass player, Tom Weil, sports his Bondurant teeshirt at a gig in California. Tom declares "I was proud to wear it."
As a special feature this anniversary year, a child-sized design was created by the Bondurant school children and a tee with the kids' design was gifted to each student by the Library Committee. See the kids' handiwork in the BBQ 2011 article.
The designs were created by renowned local artist Arlene Sibley and printed on festive red tees by Tormack Custom Screen Printing.
