4-H Fall BBQ celebrates 50 years

Published 10:00 pm Friday, September 30, 2016

In 1965, when the 4-H Foundation purchased the old county prison, it held great promise to serve as a meeting facility for 4-H and Extension educational programs for years to come. And, it has!  In 1966 an outdoor barbecue pit was attached to the dining hall.

Mrs. Emme Pebler, for whom the dining hall is named, turned the supper into what it is today, with her knowledge, organizational skills and attention to detail. The 4-H BBQ supper has always been a great meal, for a great price. But it’s also a place for folks to visit with old friends, enjoy the fabulous flavor of our time honored BBQ recipe, and see 4-H members and volunteers hard at work supporting an important and worthwhile organization.

The 4-H Foundation invites you to be a part of this long-standing tradition as we celebrate 50 years at this fall BBQ supper on Friday, Oct. 21. You won’t be disappointed! Just remember tickets are sold in advance only. To purchase tickets stop by the Extension office. For more information call 828-894-8218.
