After many years hiatus and because of popular demand, St. Mark's Episcopal Church at 33 Fairground Road in Springfield will again host its famous Chicken Barbecue.  It will be held mid-day (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) on Saturday, August 13th.  Should "Mother Nature" be uncooperative a rain date of August 20th has been reserved.   

The "Grillmaster Genius" at the pit will be none other than Chef Terry Gulick who only recognizes perfection.  The menu not only includes BBQ chicken and fresh corn on the cob but salads, drinks, and desserts as well.  All available for one low price of $10.00.  You may have your personal seating preference, inside or out.  Strolling troubadour du jour, "Just Robert" will be providing mood music for the feast.  There is ample parking and the church and grounds are all accessible.  

As in those times past we suggest you mark your calendars now.  Also, as the event nears, a warning goes out for viligance on the part of those local farmers with chickens and corn fields.  Come and enjoy a fun time, good company, and a great meal.  Don't forget to check out the "Dump Daze" Flea Market at the same time.
