Rotary Chicken (and more) BBQJune 28th, 2012 at 4:07 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
The second Comstock Park Rotary Chicken BBQ fundraiser of the summer is this PM running until 7 PM (my wife is a member). This year they are doing ribs (they sold out of ribs at the May BBQ) and sausage (they sold out of that, too in May) as well as chicken. They sold 250 dinners in the first hour last time and that’s good and only had 80 chicken dinners left at the end, so they were pleased. Thanks to the half dozen (that I know of) people who saw about the dinner on the blog and showed up! Today I was down at Noon and John was there with his Bill’s Blog t-shirt. Hope a few of you will stop by on the way home for work or if you’re looking for dinner and help them out. The Comstock Park Rotary does a lot of good work in the community. They built and are helping to maintain the new Grotto Park on the North Side of the Veterans Home on Monroe, NW and with the help of Amway Employees built a new park in the York Creek Area. I plan on being there around Noon. I hope to have a Bill’s Blog T-shirt for the first person to ask. If you want one…ask at the money table or ask for my wife (Gayle Steffen) and she can set you up with the shirt. Again, the BBQ is 11 AM to 7 PM like it says on the sign at Dwight Lydell Park in “downtown” Comstock Park on West River Drive, just down the road from 5th/3rd Park, with an easy on and off to US 131. They do three of these during the summer…the last Thursday of May, June and August. Advance Orders will be taken for pick up. Call (616) 437-5567 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by mid-morning. If you order 15 or more dinners, they’ll deliver within 10 miles. They’ve got a thousand dinners to sell and I hope they sell them all by 7 PM. There’s a gazebo there and we’ll have a tent up to get out of the sun. It’ll be a good day to spend some time at the park, where they have everything from baseball diamonds to playground equipment to a nice path for walking or jogging by the creek. Hope some of you will consider stopping by. Click here for pictures of the event from last year.
