Bill at the Comstock Park Rotary Chicken BBQ

June 26th, 2014 at 3:01 am by under Bill's Blog, Weather

Gayle as Clown  Today was the first  Comstock Park Rotary BBQ fundraiser of the summer (my wife is a member). Several blog readers stopped down at one of the BBQs last summer, so hopefully a few of you can grab a lunch or dinner when these are held.   I’m there around Noon and we talk weather.  The BBQs are the last Thursday in June and July and the 3rd Thurs. in August.  They’ll be serving food from 11:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. or until sold 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 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.  Dinners include two sides, roll and butter, and a drink. Half-chicken dinner is $9; half an order of ribs is $11, and a whole order of ribs is $16.  They also have sausage.

The Rotary Club’s dinners fund various Rotary Club projects, including scholarships at Kenowa Hills and Comstock Park high schools. Last year funds from the dinners helped finance the digging of a community well in El Salvador and a continuing project of the club is enhancement of the Grotto Park area at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans.

Advance Orders are taken for pick up.  Call 616-299-4775 or email to pre-order 10 or more meals at a specific time.  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 so you can get out of the sun if you like.  Click here for pictures of a past BBQ.  I moved this thread up…the first 4 comments are from last year.

      Many of the members take vacations in July and they just like to take the month off.
