Comstock Park Rotary BBQ TodayJune 27th, 2013 at 12:14 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
4:15 PM – We had several blog readers at the BBQ at Noon – thanks for coming. The BBQ had over 300 during the Noon Hour…very nice. They’ll have BBQ for you until 6:30 PM, so think about stopping for dinner. More on the Comstock Park Rotary BBQ fundraiser today (my wife is a member). A half dozen blog readers stopped down at our last BBQ in May, so hopefully a few of you can grab a lunch or dinner. I was there around Noon and we talked weather. 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 the new playground in the York Creek Area. The BBQ is 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. Along with the traditional chicken, they’ll have ribs and sausage. They do three BBQs during the summer…the last Thursday of May, June and August. Advance Orders are 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. There’s a large gazebo there and we have a tent up to get out of any showers (that clown may need the umbrella!). Click here for pictures of a past BBQ. We got a nice on-air plug from WOOD-AM in the past and we had a number of people show up after they heard about it on the radio with the now retired Gary Allen and Steve Kelly. Any other media help would be appreciated.
