Fourth of July Chicken BBQ
Strafford Village Historic District

The Strafford Fire and Rescue Department is excited to host our annual chicken BBQ on Saturday July 2 at 5pm in its traditional location by the town house and main fire station.  We are keeping our prices the same at$12 per meal in an effort to make this event as affordable as possible for our entire community while also serving as the department's largest fundraiser of the year.  As is tradition, the meal will include 1/2 a chicken, creamed corn, salad, roll, drink and homemade dessert.

To that end, we are looking for volunteers from across the town to bake desserts for this event.  If you are able to make a pie or other dessert, please email Andrew Lane or call him at 765-4647. Someone from our department will also be coming around to ask you in person for this support.

Maybe you don't like chicken and can't bake?  You can still support the fire department by purchasing a T-shirt on the common after the parade or by participating in our annual duck races.

Something that will be different this year is that we don't have the
volunteer power to run our auction or to make the cook shack available to the public.  If you are interested in volunteering to support the BBQ, please also reach out to Andrew Lane.  We'd welcome your help.
