The Kinderhook Reformed Church Cemetery is sponsoring a BROOKS BAR-B-CUE again this year from 3:00 - 6:30 p.m., September 28, on the front and side lawns of the church. PRICES ARE $12 FOR THE FULL DINNER AND $8 FOR CHICKEN ONLY. All proceeds will go toward operation and maintenance of the cemetery grounds, which has, over the years, become an increasingly costly community ministry. BAR-B-CUE reservations may be made by phone by calling 758-9492, or by calling the church office, 758-6401, and leaving your reservation information on either answering machine. PAYMENT BY CHECK OR BY CASH FOR PHONE RESERVATIONS, WILL BE COLLECTED WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT THE BAR-B-CUE. If you prefer, you may purchase prepaid tickets from Jim Dunham, Gary Leggett, or other representative of the Cemetery Committee.
As part of the fundraiser, we will also be selling desserts to enhance the meal at a very reasonable price.
The Cemetery Committee remembers gratefully your support of last year’s BAR-B-CUE, and is counting on your help in making this important fundraising event a success again this year.
