Parish chicken BBQ was a huge success

American Legion Post 601 raised more than $1,900 for Pleasant Lawn, Bidwell Cemetery associations recently.

The chicken BBQ was a huge success. It officially started at noon and was sold out by 12:30 p.m.

A total of 145 chickens and three tables filled with baked goods were sold.

The Bidwell and Pleasant Lawn associations can’t thank the American Legion Post 601 family enough for all they did for us.

Eleanor Kinney won the 50/50 drawing and donated back the winnings. Thanks Eleanor.

Our thanks go out to all of the the people that  showed up, the wonderful ladies of the auxiliary, to those that donated baked goods, to the generous people that made monetary donations,  Bernie Horning and his crew that cooked those wonderful chickens and side dishes, and to Commander Richard Palmer and the American Legion family of Parish. Our hats are off to you.
