Members of the NWBA are welcome at the annual election vote count, and there usually is some kind of treat for those attending: 
Jim said, “This year, it was a big pot of Gumbo for lunch and if you missed it……………..you missed it!  Then, tasting at Propolis Brewing!  I like the one brewed with nettles.”
