A tasty tradition

-- — Driving along Baytree Road this weekend, you may experience a little more traffic congestion than is normal around Temple Israel.

The Temple’s annual Kosher Corned Beef Sandwich Sale kicks off Friday and continues Sunday and Monday.

The sale has become a Valdosta tradition. If you don’t believe it, swing by the Temple at lunch on any of these days.

You will see car after car driving up and around the Temple to pick up the lunch of a third-pound of corned beef sandwich, chips, dill pickle, drink, a dessert, and condiments. Temple Israel expects to sell more than 6,000 sandwiches this year.

Donating a portion of the proceeds to a worthy cause in the Valdosta-Lowndes County community is another sandwich sale tradition. This year, there are multiple causes: Lowndes County Future Farmers of America, Hopes and Dreams Riding Facility, and the Rotary Club’s law-enforcement fund, which was the focus of the recent annual Law-Enforcement Appreciation Dinner.

These organizations contribute to the good of our region.

So does the sandwich sale.

If you have already purchased a ticket, don’t forget to pick up your corned beef sandwich Friday, Sunday or Monday. If you don’t have a ticket, get one. Come sandwich days, you can eat inside or take it to go.

And don’t worry about traffic. Another tradition: Temple Israel members keep the sandwiches and cars moving.

    THUMBS UP: To Air Force Lt. Col. David Rayman. The 75th Fighter Squadron commander recently logged 3,000 flight hours in the A-10C Thunderbolt II. A rare feat. In presenting a Moody Air Force Base story on his accomplishment in The Times, it’s good to see the face and know the name of one of the many pilots who cross our South Georgia skies. Congratulations on 3,000 and thank you for your service.
