Each dinner features “famous” Fulton Lions BBQ chicken, baked beans, salt potatoes, macaroni salad, and dessert, Sokolowski said. “We also want to thank Chris Satchel and Mimi’s Drive–in for donating macaroni salad to our event.”

“Harold ‘H’ Dowd was a member of the Fulton Lions Club for more than 40 years,” Sokolowski said. “ He served both our club and our community with dedication, selflessness and good humor. Mary Dowd was an honorary Fulton Lions Club member who always opened her home to the club and to foreign exchange students for years. The Fulton Lions have established a scholarship for a graduating Fulton high school student in their name to be awarded on a yearly basis.
