Bethlehem, NC – Do you love delicious chicken barbeque, moist and packed with flavor? Then mark your calendars for Saturday, April 6th, set your GPS to bring you to Mt. Pisgah Lutheran Church in Bethlehem, and plan on spending just a little bit of money for a great cause and great food. Event Coordinator for the troop, Ken Wasmund points out that the event was moved from an autumn activity to the spring this year. “The Boy Scouts decided to move the event to the early spring due to scheduling issues in October. They are excited about taking advantage of the warmer temperatures and the excitement folks feel getting out of the house after winter. There’s nothing better than kicking off ‘Spring Fever’ with some great tasting chicken, continually basted with a marinade and cooked over an open charcoal pit.”

Wasmund adds, “Our first year we started with 350 chicken dinners and this year we are making 450 chicken dinners because we continue to sell out every year.” Hosted by Mt. Pisgah, all proceeds from this event benefit Boy Scout Troop #275, which help pay for the troop’s yearly charter fee, classroom, and camping supplies. The event starts at 12:00 pm and continues into late afternoon or until the food runs out. Chicken BBQ plates include half a chicken, homemade slaw and beans, a freshly baked dinner roll, dessert, and a drink for $10.00. Kid’s Hot Dog plates are available for $5.00 and include one side, dessert, and a drink.

Come join with Mt. Pisgah Lutheran Church and the event’s other sponsors—Hendrick Honda Hickory, a new sponsor this year, Paramount Kia of Hickory, Evans Drug, Leonard’s Express, and Dr. Thomas Rider, DDS, of Bethlehem, and in supporting Boy Scout Troop #275.
