RCC Opening Center In Liberty Randolph Community College soon will have a more permanent presence in Liberty as the town’s community leaders have offered the usage of the fellowship hall and classrooms of First Baptist Church of Liberty to the College. RCC has had classes at various sites in Liberty, but the new Liberty Center will include RCC signage, and a parking lot and separate entrance for college students, faculty, and staff. “We’ve been working closely with community leaders for some time, and we’ve offered classes there over the years at different sites, but we’ve never had an identifiable presence there,” RCC President Dr. Robert Shackleford said. “This will make a difference.” Shackleford said the College also has been collaborating with community leaders in Liberty on a grant for downtown development. “They see us as a part of their future,” he said. “This will take it one step further in our partnership.” Billy Hardin, Chair of the Randolph County Economic Development Corporation, is currently working on putting together an advisory committee that will meet in August to help identify the community’s needs and what the College can do to meet those needs. “We want to make sure we meet the needs of Liberty,” Shackleford said. “We’ve always been there [in Liberty] and valued that relationship. This is a big step toward creating an identifiable presence, so people know where we are.” RCC’s Small Business Center is already planning on having a regularly scheduled presence at the Liberty Center. Classes will include entrepreneurship, c o m p u t e r, h i g h s c h o o l equivalency, and continuing education with a full roll-out planned for the spring 2020 semester. “When the classes Randolph Community College Director start depends on what the of Facilities Operations Cindi Goodwin, needs are,” Shackleford said, left, and RCC Vice President for noting RCC will plan on Administrative Services Daffie Garris having an opening house at speak with one of Liberty’s community the site. leaders at First Baptist Church of Liberty on June 21.

Apprenticeship Randolph Expands Apprenticeship Randolph is holding its third Signing Ceremony on Thursday, Aug. 8, after announcing the addition of Automotive Systems Technology and a partnership with Thomas Tire & Automotive in February. Apprenticeship Randolph began in June 2016 as a collaboration among Randolph Community College, the Randolph County School System, Asheboro City Schools, the Asheboro/Randolph Chamber of Commerce, and local manufacturers. The goal was to bridge both the interest and skills gaps in modern manufacturing and provide a vehicle for expanding the workforce pool for advanced manufacturing in the county. With tuition funded through Career and College Promise and the N.C. Youth Apprenticeship Tuition Waiver Program and books paid for by the school systems and the participating companies, Apprenticeship Randolph produces an educated, skilled, debt-free workforce. The program, which is for high school juniors and seniors, begins with a six-week, preapprenticeship summer program that consists of two RCC classes and 40 hours per week of on-the-job training. Once a business selects its apprentice after this trial period, the program is spread over four years with students receiving paid, on-the-job training while earning an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Manufacturing Technology or in Automotive Systems Technology through RCC and a Journeyworker Certificate from the N.C. Community College System and U.S. Department of Labor. Currently, there are 28 apprentices in the program with titles such as CNC Machinist, Tool Maker, Medical Knitting Technician, Robotics Technician, Maintenance Technician, Plastics Technician, and Electronics Technician. Liberty students thrive at RCC RCC boasted 18 students from Liberty earning degrees, diplomas, and certificates this spring. Three Liberty natives received academic awards this spring with three being inducted into RCC’s chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

Swanson Lee "Buster" Kidd,

Memories Of Buster

78, of Liberty, died Sunday, June 30, 2019 at Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital in Greensboro. Funeral Services, 2:00 PM, Wednesday, July 3, 2019, at Shady Grove Baptist Church, Staley. Officiating, Rev. Tommy Kidd. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. Buster was a native of Randolph County, graduated from Liberty High School and owner and operator for 52 years of Kidd's Drive-In, Liberty where he enjoyed being with his friends. His favorite pastimes was bluegrass music, fishing, fish frys, and gardening. He was preceded in death by his parents, Clacie and Ruby Haithcock Kidd, brothers, Bill Kidd, Bob Kidd, Garland Kidd. Survivors: wife, Rebecca Heilig Kidd, of the home, sons, Steve Kidd, of Liberty, Jerry Kidd and wife, Pam, of Liberty, grandchildren, Preston Kidd, Kathryn Kidd.

I will always remember Buster driving my school bus when I was in 3rd and 4th grade at Liberty School. In later years enjoying coming back to Liberty and having his food at Kidd's. He would always remind me that a chili dog and a dog with chili were two dierent things.

Memories Of Buster I remember as a little girl, my aunt Margo babysat my sister and I at my Grandaddys concrete plant there in Liberty (Albert Smith Concrete) my aunt would take us early to Muzzies for lunch, see if you didn’t go early to get plate lunches they would run out of food, that’s how good it is! Well, as my sister and I got older we drove ourselves to Muzzies and my dad was in the concrete business as well (Jesse Cole’s concrete) so we would go to Muzzies for lunch and tell Buster what we wanted for lunch and told him just put on our daddy’s tab (see dad would go here for breakfast and lunch daily) He did..No questions asked.. Do you think any other places around would let you do that and leave without paying?! NO!!! See Buster new my Grandaddy and my daddy, well actually new my whole family (Margo’s husband Larry worked for my Grandaddy at concrete plant as well and my mom went to school with him.. But you see Buster was just a very kind man who new a lot of people in Liberty. My daughter will only eat Muzzies Hot Dogs, she doesn’t like from anywhere else. My dad would buy the weenies in bulk from Buster..... My son loved their hot dogs as well. Best place ever to eat in Liberty!!đ&#x;’• Buster Kidd R I P " you will be missed by many! This is what I have asked for the past 2 years when my sister asked me what I wanted for my birthday lunch, which was just last week!...nothing like this place, loved it since I was little. Pull up - Honk your horn and get curb service.

A burger and hot dog drive in where friends come to eat and catch up

Where everybody knows everybody

He's gonna be missed by many, he always joked with me when I came in cause we have same birthday July 3. He always smiled and said your the old one I'm the young one. Rip buster Kidd

If you needed or wanted to catch up on town gossip you went to Kidds. LOL

His food as good and the prices, he was always smiling and greeted everybody.

He would call the house around Thanksgiving or Christmas and say, hey Robbie, we getting together down at Curtis, need you to make those beans and some grilled chicken. Gonna miss those phone calls and the get togethers we all had at Curtis and Rhonda's. Buster, I'll always remember, when we started our business, the advice and warning he gave me. I have since learned he was right. I also remember going and picking up burgers hotdogs and fries for lunch, during our lunch break from pulling tobacco. A lot of good memories going into Kidds around 3pm and if you caught Buster in, he was usually taking a cat nap, at the table. He had been up before a lot of us even rolled over, fixing breakfast for those that got a very early start to their day. God Bless and prayers for Becky, Steve and Jerry.

My husband tells me about how his uncle Larry Cheek and Red Fogleman use to take him there when he was a little bitty guy (4 or 5) and feed him Busters hotdogs until his little belly pooched out like a balloon.

Buster drove our school bus back in the day. You didn't act up on it either, he would stop and put you o it in a heartbeat! His family farm isn't that far away from where I live. When I am at home at any given time or day, I might look out and see Buster either going to or coming from the farm. He will be missed!

No matter what decade, the place never seemed to age or change. Â

Tick Season: An Ounce of Prevention Is Worth a Pound of Cure (SPM Wire) Summer is here, and nature beckons. The benefits of spending time outside -- from an increase in vitamin D levels to the healing powers of nature -- are common knowledge, and outdoor activities are widely encouraged by various health organizations. But while you’re out and about enjoying fresh air, don’t forget to take precautions against the possibility of being bitten by a tick. Ticks are tiny arthropods that live by feeding on the blood of other animals and people. They often transmit a variety of complicated infections that, if untreated, can lead to dire consequences. But you don’t have to let these tiny creatures get in the way of your enjoyment of nature. Just make sure to follow few simple rules before and after your outing: • Treat clothing and gear with products containing permethrin, and your body with EPA-registered insect repellent. • Cover up if you will be spending time in bushy or wooded areas or wandering through fields of tall grass. Wear long sleeves and tuck your long pants into your socks -- while this look would be frowned upon by the fashion-conscious, it may, literally, save your life! • Once home, check your clothes and body for ticks, and don’t forget some of the not-so-obvious places, like your scalp, belly button and underarms.

5 Delicious Low-Carb Recipes Perfect for a Cookout (StatePoint) Food on the grill, carb-loaded side dishes and high-sugar desserts are at the center of most seasonal cookouts. But this doesn’t mean you need to avoid those countless neighborhood barbecues to ensure you stay on track with your healthy lifestyle. Courtney McCormick, manager of Clinical Research & Nutrition for South Beach Diet, recommends these five lower-carb recipes that are great to bring along to any cookout. • Shredded Chicken Chili: Just toss some chicken, beans, tomatoes and a combination of chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and oregano in your slow cooker and let that magic machine do all the work. Six hours later, you’ll have perfectly cooked chicken and plenty of flavorful fixings for fewer calories than a chicken prepared in a sugary or cheesy sauce. • Avocado Tuna Sandwiches: Mix lemon juice, avocado, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl and add canned tuna fish. Scoop onto a slice of whole grain bread with arugula, sliced cucumbers and red onions and you’ve got yourself a delicious sandwich to eat in place of that hamburger. • Skinny Shrimp Fajitas: You won’t miss the tortilla with this recipe! Combine shrimp, onion, bell pepper, olive oil and dry fajita spices such as chili powder, garlic, onion, cumin and paprika in a large bowl. Pour into a veggie basket or place on skewers and let the grill do the work for you. • Pesto Cilantro Dip: Bake walnuts at 275 degrees until golden brown, then chop cilantro, garlic, and walnuts in a food processor for about 25 seconds. With the machine running, pour olive oil in a steady stream. Add sour cream, lemon juice and salt. Pulse a few times to combine and you’re done! Serve with fresh veggies. “This recipe is quick and simple,” says McCormick. “It contains minimal ingredients and it is packed with healthy fats. Plus, it keeps five days in the refrigerator and freezes for up to a month.” • South Beach Coleslaw: Coleslaw is a BBQ staple and this recipe for a lighter version of it is easy as 1-2-3! Whisk together mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, celery seed and a sugar substitute. Add cabbage and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to serve. For more details on these recipes and other great tips and tricks to lose weight and live healthier, visit South Beach Diet’s website The Palm at cookout-low-carb-recipes. Remember, cookouts don’t need to wreak havoc on your healthy diet. By making some simple swaps and choosing healthier options, you’ll stay on track while still enjoying time outdoors with family and friends.

July 2019 You Know What Day It Is..

(StatePoint) Whether it’s dance lessons, computer projects, art class or yoga, kids these days are busy bees. And while such activities are enriching and fun, experts say that many kids aren’t spending enough time doing something much simpler and every bit as important as structured programming: playing outdoors.

HUMP DAY!!! Hump Day Dinner 6pm - 8pm 2nd Wednesday of each month

“Finding time for the kids to play outside can be such a challenge for parents,” says Keri Wilmot, a pediatric occupational therapist and an expert contributor to “As a parent I worry about ‘stranger danger’ or whether my kids will be able to navigate social issues on their own. Without spontaneity, playtime has lost some of it’s fun.”

You Are Invited Bethany United Methodist Church 6151 Bethany Way, Staley FREE DINNER Come One - Come All

Outdoor play is necessary for healthy child development, according to The Genius of Play. The initiative, whose mission is to raise awareness about the importance of play and help parents make play a critical part of raising their kids, is sharing five benefits of unstructured outdoor playtime:

• Risk-Taking: Through outdoor play, children are given the opportunity to step outside their comfort zones and try new things. While taking risks won’t always lead to success on the first try, moments like a first bike ride without training wheels, or the first trip down the big slide in the playground, are critical for building the confidence and resilience needed to pursue a future career, start a business, or handle life’s many challenges. • Social Skills: Childhood games played outdoors can help build social skills and teach kids to follow directions. From games as simple as tag, to those with more complicated rules, like “Kick the Can,” “Capture the Flag,” and sports like soccer and basketball, communication, teamwork and other important social skills are developed during outdoor play. • Problem Solving: Children’s imaginations are often stimulated by the world around them. Being outside widens their horizons and can encourage kids to tap into their creativity in order to come up with solutions to challenges, such as learning how to build a sandcastle or figuring out how to climb up a jungle gym. • Reducing Stress: So much outdoor play involves physical activity, thrilling moments and a sense of freedom, all of which can boost endorphins, helping to lower stress levels and reduce anxiety and depression. Interestingly, simply touching dirt when creating mud pies or digging for worms can be beneficial. According to a Bristol University study, certain types of “friendly” bacteria in soil have been found to activate the group of neurons that produce serotonin, which contributes to a feeling of well-being and happiness. So, don’t be afraid to let your kids get a bit dirty out there! For play ideas, expert advice and other play resources, visit

• Physical Development: Research has shown that physically active kids tend to be leaner and healthier, while an inactive childhood can lead to a sedentary (and likely unhealthy) lifestyle in adulthood. Furthermore, physical play builds gross and fine motor skills necessary for success in school and beyond. Hanging from the monkey bars, for instance, helps kids develop the hand muscles needed to grip a pencil.

Liberty Resident Richard Clapp Jumps at Normandy Commemoration By Rick Staton Richard Clapp, a resident of Liberty jumped out of Douglas DC-3/C-47 Dakotas, along with 250 men and women who parachuted exactly 75 years after the Normandy Invasion into the Historic drop zones over Normandy, France. All of the men and women who parachuted wore WWII- style allied uniforms and jumped using military round parachutes. They jumped between June 5th and the 9th. This month (June), The D-Day Invasion will see her 75th commemoration. This month (June), provided us with the final opportunity to organize DAKS over Normandy to honor those who paid so much. The skies over the United Kingdom and Normandy, France were filled with Douglas DC-3/C-47 Dakotas and hundreds of paratroopers. Here is some background from that Invasion: June 6th, 1944 marks the date on which almost 160,000 allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy to liberate Western Europe. The assault was followed by 24,000 troops who parachuted in or came by glider. Eight hundred Douglas C-47 Skytrains ( Dakotas) were the unsung heroes.

The 100 Man Project, Inc. Mourns the passing of one of the original members of the group formed in 2010. Adam York, a very intelligent, thoughtful and giving young man from here in Liberty died in June. During his short time on this earth, he was beset at a young age with very life limiting health issues, but never seemed to allow his ever increasing disabilities overcome his spirit and define him. When asked in 2010 to be our Recording Secretary, he immediately agreed, his thought being he could contribute his time and energy so others might benefit from his efforts. Adam would attend monthly meetings that we held at the Fire Department, tape record every word of the hour long meeting, go home, and for the next day or two, tap out each letter of each word with written, detailed accounts of every discussion and e-mail those minutes to all the Directors. He did this every month for more than two years until his issues forced him to discontinue. The Group misses Adam, but we realize he is now “healed” and enjoying his Eternity….we wish him well…

The Liberty Leader Newspaper 3 Ways to Make the Most of Summer Produce

(StatePoint) Summer can be all too fleeting, but one of the best ways to ensure you make the most of the season is by enjoying the generous harvest of fruits and vegetables it brings. Here are three simple ways to make the most of summer produce: Get Produce at Its Peak Produce tastes best when enjoyed during its peak season. Before shopping, check produce guides to see what’s at its peak near you. A few easy ways to be sure you’re getting the cream of the crop are to join a Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) group, visit a farmer’s market and to simply look for the local label at your supermarket. In a culinary rut? Because CSA members don’t always have the option of selecting the exact items they receive, a subscription is a particularly good idea for those with adventurous spirits looking to expand their horizons. Be Safe In your efforts to feed your family nutritious produce this summer, be mindful that many fruits and vegetables contain contaminants like pesticides, wax and soil on their outer layer. While independent studies show that washing produce with water or bleach solution still leaves behind large traces of pesticides, there is now a better way to protect your family. With just a spray and rinse, Arm & Hammer’s Fruit & Vegetable Wash safely eliminates more than 90 percent of residue from the commonly used pesticide thiabendazole, when used as directed -- four times better than water alone. Made with pure and simple ingredients like Arm & Hammer baking soda, water, salt and lemon oil; and free of harsh chemicals, it’s easy to stock your kitchen with it and make it a part of meal prep. For more information, as well as cleaning tips, visit Use it Up Don’t let any produce go to waste. Here are five fun uses for fruit and vegetables: • Fruit popsicles: Chop fruit into small chunks and mix with juice and even a bit of honey. Pour the mixture into a popsicle mold and freeze. You’ll have a delicious, healthful snack for later. • Fruit or veggie kebabs: The grill is not just for burgers and dogs. Make veggie skewers using mushrooms, zucchini, green peppers and onions. For a light dessert, grill pears and peaches to be eaten on their own or topped with a bit of ice cream. • Pesto: Go beyond the classic basil recipe to get creative with your pesto sauces. From cilantro to spinach to mint, many of summer’s richest green herbs and vegetables make great standins. • Cold soups: The weather may be hot, but that doesn’t mean you need to put soup on the back burner -- or any burner at all. From gazpacho to borscht served chilled, you can cool down with soup this summer. • Preserves: Certain fruits -- such as strawberries -- can technically be found any time of year, but are absolutely unparalleled in summer. Capture that magic for the months ahead by turning your favorite fruits into jams. With a bit of planning, you can thoroughly enjoy the vast array of fruits and vegetables harvested during the summer months.

Beginning and intermediate students will get the opportunity to try out painting methods while learning design, drawing, and color theory. Bowers, who was recognized as the 2013 North Carolina Historian of the Year for his efforts in historical preservation, has been painting for his entire adult life. He has studied with several nationally-recognized painters including Ellena Basa and John Seerey-Lester. Bowers’ goal is to save the ever-changing historical North Carolina landscape for future generations through his paintings. Classes will be held on location at public sites around Randolph County. Students will need to furnish their own supplies. The class (#70844) meets from 6-8 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays, July 16Aug. 15. On rainy days, the class will meet in room 122 of the Administration/Education Center on the Asheboro Campus. The cost is $70.55. For more information or to register, call 336-633-0268.

Summer is finally here which can only mean one thing—vacation time! As you are getting ready to head on vacation the last thing on your mind is, “Are my valuables insured properly?” Most people are under the false assumption that as long as they have property coverage that all of their valuables are insured at replacement cost but in all actuality, this isn’t the case. Certain valuables such as firearms and jewelry have a limit defined in the policy. Typically, these limits range from $1,500 to $2,500 depending on your policy. Most policies also have exclusions for simply losing a valuable. Picture this, you’re lying in the sun on your family trip. You decide to take a dip in the water to cool off. You pull your hand out of the water and realize your $6,000 engagement ring is no longer on your finger. A quick call to your insurance provider makes things go from bad to worse when you are told the limit on your policy for non-scheduled jewelry is $1,500.

Many customers don’t realize that this whole situation could have been avoided by asking for an inland marine policy. Like a typical renter or homeowners policy, your valuables are covered while they are anywhere in the world but an inland marine removes the policy limit and makes it a full replacement cost policy for your scheduled items. Typically, these are inexpensive policy’s and carry no deductible. Most insurance providers don’t require appraisals when the value of one item is less than $10,000. Inland marine policy’s cover a range of valuables anywhere from jewelry, to sporting equipment, firearms, and art. Make sure a call to your agent is the first call you make before you head out this summer!

Ramseur Community 5 Basic Things Everyone Should Know About Their Car Garcia, Hoover receive PTK (StatePoint) Driving can be expensive if you lack basic car-care knowledge or Scholarships proper insurance. Regular maintenance can prevent costly breakdowns and Two Randolph Community College students recently were presented with the annual Waymon C. Martin Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship. Associate in Arts student Carmen Garcia and Medical Assisting student Regina Hoover both received $500 in a ceremony Friday, June 28, in the Student Services Conference Center on the Asheboro Campus. Garcia graduated from high school in 2011, enrolling in RCC in 2016. She is studying Business Administration and hopes to transfer to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, eventually working in Human Resources. “This is going to help a lot,” the mother of three said of the scholarship. “I’m going to be able to get books, and continue my education.” Hoover, a single mother of two, is looking to work in the public health field by going to physician’s assistant school. “It’s great to be acknowledged for all the hard work I’ve put in,” she said. “This is an ‘atta boy.’ ” Both Garcia and Hoover are PTK members. The scholarship was named for Martin, who taught Business Administration at RCC from 2001 until his retirement in 2017 as Department Head for Business Administration. He served as a Phi Theta Kappa advisor from 2002-2017. English/Communication Instructor and PTK Advisor W. Clark Adams introduced Martin, who gave a brief history of the scholarship before presenting the certificates. “I’m happy to be able to offer two scholarships to Miss Garcia and Miss Hoover,” he said. “I appreciate the academic struggles and all the hard work you’ve put in. I’m glad you both are planning on earning your bachelor’s. I hope you continue to be successful academically.”

extend your car’s life, and the right coverage can protect your wallet in the event of an accident. Here are five need-to-know basics:

1. Know car insurance basics. Before getting behind the wheel, know these terms: • Liability. Every state requires you to carry liability insurance, which covers injuries to others or damage to others’ property. You may hear it referred to as Property Damage (PD for short) or Bodily Injury (BI for short). • Collision vs. comprehensive. Collision pays for repairs to your car if you hit another vehicle or crash into an object. Comprehensive covers other incidents. For example, hitting a deer, hailstorm damage, vandalization or theft. • Deductible. This is the amount you’ll pay out-of-pocket for repairs before insurance kicks in. • Endorsement. Sometimes referred to as a “rider,” an endorsement refers to a change or addition to existing coverage. For example, Erie Insurance has an endorsement called ERIE Rate Lock which customers can add to policies so their rates will increase only if they change their policy, drivers, vehicles or their address, even if they file a claim. “Car insurance can be complicated, so we don’t expect drivers to know everything, but we do recommend understanding a few basics,” says Jon Bloom, vice president, personal auto, Erie Insurance. “Working with an insurance agent can help you get the right coverage for you, based on your car and budget.” 2. Read the owner’s manual. Learn the car’s bells and whistles and how often to rotate tires, check belts and hoses and change the oil. Check dashboard warning lights. Red typically indicates your car may be unsafe to drive. Yellow or orange usually means you should get it checked but it’s not urgent. Green generally indicates a feature is working. 3. Check tires monthly. Proper tire pressure promotes good gas mileage and can extend tire life. Reference the sticker found inside the driver’s door for the recommended pressure. Don’t over inflate. Consider learning how to change a tire, a handy skill when assistance isn’t available. 4. Get regular oil changes. Some companies, like GM and Ford, equip vehicles with oil monitors so owners know when to change oil. If you don’t have this feature, reference your owner’s manual. Most manufacturers recommend changing oil between 5,000 and 7,500 miles, while synthetic oils are likely good for 10,000 to 15,000 miles.

5. Master the jump-start. Usually a car battery needs to be replaced every five years. While a dead battery is never convenient, it’s easy to jump start a car. Attach one red clamp to the positive terminal of the dead battery. The other red clamp goes on the positive terminal of the live battery. The black clamp attaches to the negative terminal of the live battery. The final clamp goes onto an unpainted metal surface on the dead car’s engine block to prevent hazardous sparking. Turn on the live car. Allow the dead car to run for at least a half hour to charge. Always double-check your owner’s manual to be sure your vehicle doesn’t require special jump-starting procedures. By knowing the basics, you can hit the road with confidence.

Tips to Punch up Your Next Backyard Barbecue (StatePoint) If you’re like many folks, your backyard will become the heart of the home throughout the summer, as you play host to barbecues, picnics, parties and more. To punch up your next celebration, give these tips a try. Set the Scene Make the task of DJ-ing simple by creating a playlist in advance, and getting your outdoor sound system set up before guests arrive. For evening parties, add ambiance to the scene by hanging string lights above your patio, pergola or wherever you want guests to dine and congregate. Tiki lights can add even more illumination to your party, while helping to keep biting bugs at bay.

336-622-5007 161 S Greensboro ST. Liberty, NC. 27298

Cooking Instructions: • Preheat grill to medium or oven to 400 F. • In a large bowl, combine remaining garlic salt, cayenne, garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, and lemon pepper. Toss chicken and spices in large ziplock bag or bowl until evenly coated. • For grill, place wings over heat turning frequently. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature is 165 degrees and skin is crispy. • For oven, arrange wings on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, turning halfway through, until skin is browned and tips are crispy. Serve warm. For extra crisp, toss wings on the grill over medium-high heat for three minutes per side before serving. Serve alongside backyard classics like macaroni salad, cole slaw, grilled veggies and iced tea or lemonade. Iced Tea Bar Refresh guests with a summer classic -- iced tea, but go above and beyond by creating a full-scale iced tea bar. Keep in mind that tastes vary, so be sure to include a variety of flavors -- sweet tea, no calorie tea, tea mixed with lemonade and peach tea, to name a few. As a mainstay of any outdoor gathering, be sure you are serving beverages with high-quality, fresh, natural ingredients, such as the teas offered by Milo’s, which have no added colors, acids or preservatives. Label each variety so guests can pick their favorite. With a few twists on your standard hosting habits, you can throw the ultimate backyard gathering this season.
