Bill at the Rotary Chicken BBQ in Comstock ParkJuly 24th, 2014 at 1:22 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
Today we have another Comstock Park Rotary BBQ fundraiser (my wife is a member). The weather should be perfect, partly to mostly sunny and low-mid 70s. Several blog readers stop down at the BBQs , so hopefully a few of you can grab a lunch or dinner. I’m there around Noon and we talk weather or whatever. The BBQs are the 4th Thursdays 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 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 sausage and 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.
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.
Advance Orders are taken for pick up. Call 616-299-4775 or email email@example.com to pre-order 10 or more meals at a specific time. If you order 15 or more dinners, they’ll deliver within 10 miles. In June, one company ordered 52 dinners for their employees – nice. 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.
