Terry “T-Bone” Bennett Bull Roast on April 29, 2017
A T-Bone Bull Roast is not what you think, if you were thinking of T-Bone steaks being served. Terry “T-Bone” Bennett was in charge of the upcoming Joppatowne Lions Club Community Bull Roast, but he passed suddenly on March 24, 2017. The Joppatowne Lions Club decided to change the name of the Bull Roast to honor him.
T-Bone was known throughout Harford County, Maryland, several other states and even as far as England and Italy, maybe even other planets, it’s hard to say. He was an Army Veteran and joined the Joppatowne Lions Club in 1998 with his brother. Later, he helped charter the Harford County chapter of the Essex Motorcycle Club where he served as President.
But who was Terry “T-Bone” Bennett? Sure he may have been intimidating looking, as some truck drivers and bikers are, but he had a heart of gold. He was Santa Claus for John Archer School years ago when they held their Christmas Pageants, and he was also Santa for the Joppatowne Lions Club Annual Breakfast with Santa for several years. People that live in Joppatowne probably remember seeing him ride his Harley in December dressed as Santa Claus right before the breakfast would start.
He would drop anything at a moment to help someone in need, whether it was changing a tire on a car for someone on the side of the road, helping a lady in distress, or even helping a lost child find her parents. That’s also one of the reasons he decided to join the Joppatowne Lions Club, to be able to help others that needed it.
On April 29, 2017, the Joppatowne Lions Club will be holding their Bull Roast, properly named, the Terry “T-Bone” Bennett Bull Roast. All monies raised will go back into the community and help with vision, hearing, diabetes research and more. T-Bone actually had a artificial eye as well as diabetes.
The event will be catered by Towne Grill & Pub with ham, turkey and beef from the pit… sorry, no t-bone steaks. Draft Beer, wine and sodas are included in the price and you cannot bring your own bottle, T-Bone believed in supporting the caterer, so he insisted NO BYOB. There will also be multiple canned beers for sale.
Tickets are only $35 a person and are limited, so get them while they last. Tickets will not be sold at the door. You may purchase tickets online right here. The event will be held at Holy Sprirt Catholic Church, 540 Joppa Farm Rd in Joppatowne, MD. 21085 from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM.
