Generous donations in the past have allowed everyone to be invited to the Pig Out at no charge.  Your help is still needed!  If you would like to contribute, please make your check payable to Saluda Pig Out and take it to Macon Bank at 108 Main Street in Saluda or to Judy Ward at Thompson’s Store, or mail it to Saluda Pig Out; P. O. Box 265; Saluda NC 28773.  You may also make a donation as you enjoy your meal at the Pig Out!


The Saluda Historic Depot will be holding the drawing at the Pig Out for the golf cart that is a fundraiser to purchase the Saluda Historic Depot. $25 tickets can be purchased at the Saluda Historic Depot, Thursday through Sunday from 12 to 4pm, Duck Alley, or Thompson’s/Ward’s Grill.


Your support is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to another great Pig Out on September 12! Pets are not allowed in the Pavilion area. This is a rain or shine event. Don’t forget to bring a dessert.
