The Fire Company’s famous chicken barbecues make the Saturdays on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends extra special. The barbecues began in the 1960’s when the firefighters cooked 300 halves of chicken in a tent in the graveyard of the Quaker Meeting House, which was across the street from the old fire hall. In the fall of 1974 the firefighters, using much donated material and labor, built a permanent fire pit (48 feet long x 4 feet wide) complete with a pavilion-type roof behind the fire hall on Enterprise Drive. There is space to grill 400 chicken halves at one time.
