Lee Spude is one of six volunteers who make up the organizing committee for the Brussels kermis. They arrived early Sunday morning at the Brussels Town Park on Junction St. to prepare for a special church ceremony.
Spude says all of the proceeds from the myriad kermis events benefit St Francis and St Mary Catholic Church on the north end of town. Kids were greeted with lawn games and inflatables on the softball diamond. Food was under the pavilion including traditional Belgian dishes like booyah and trippe. Cow pie bingo and a gun raffle happened off to the corner. The live and silent auction brought bidders from an hour away. All items donated were crafted by Brussels residents.
