BBQ Chicken: Washington College KA Helps Local Lions Club with Fundraiser

The Chestertown Lions Club held its annual chicken BBQ on Saturday, Oct. 5 at the Trinity Lutheran Church across the street from Washington College.

“This is an event that Kent County residents look forward to and enjoy every year. It was a successful event again this year as 700 chicken halves were sold by 2:30 pm.,” a news release states.

A large part of this success goes to the Kappa Alpha Order at Washington College [Beta Omega Chapter] as a number of KA members began arriving at the church around 6:30 a.m. to help fire up the charcoal pits. During the day, 20 KA members helped with all aspects of the BBQ and then stayed until closing to help clean up, the release states.

Project proceeds provide funding to local charities and community services like: the Food Pantry, eyeglasses for those in need, free transportation to eye doctor appointments for county residents, scholarships for high school seniors, funding for the Leader Dog program, vision screening tests for elementary school students, Kent County Christmas Basket program, Chestertown Halloween Parade, Home Ports, Kent County Cub Scouts and county youth sports teams.

“Without the continued involvement of the KAs for our Chicken BBQ, it would be hard to complete all the work necessary for its success,” the release states.

King Lion Rick Coffman welcomed members of the Kappa Alpha Order of Washington College at a business dinner meeting for the Chestertown Lions Club held at the Chester River Yacht & Country Club on Jan. 22.

The Lion Club recognized the KAs with a pizza party again this year for their support in assisting the Lions Club with its Chicken BBQ fundraiser this fall.

“The KAs have been helping the club for many years and without their help, we could not make this fundraiser the success it has been,” a news releases states.

The KAs provided support including helping set up cooing grates, cook chicken, box chicken, deliver boxes to the sales tables, and clean up sales and kitchen areas, the release states.
