The Fulton Lions Club has announced that they will be hosting its sixth annual chicken BBQ, Sun. Feb. 6, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Fulton Polish Home to benefit the club’s Mary and Harold “H” Dowd Memorial Scholarship, said Jim Sokolowski, Fulton Lions president.
Chicken dinner tickets may be purchased for an $8 donation at the door for take-out, said Dr. Brett Tallents, event chair. Local delivery of 5 or more dinners may be pre-arranged by contacting any Lions Club member in advance of the event or by calling 591-7723 on the day of the event. In addition, there will be a 50-50 drawing that day.
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.
