So, the next time you go shopping at the Acme, be sure to look up and see ‘em.
••• THOSE TWO BARBECUES Each spring and each fall, the Goodwill Fire Company and the Methodist Men of the Centreville United Methodist Church hold chicken barbecues to raise funds. It has become somewhat of a tradition in town because it has been going on for many years. How many? Well, that was the question I put to Donald Dawkins at the latest barbecue last week at the firehouse.
I said that I suppose the fire company started it to make a few dollars. He said, no, it started at the old Epworth Church, which was in the building next to the jail in downtown Centreville back in 1957. Seems like we set up in the back yard with grills and served out of the meeting room at the side of the church.
We are not sure but we believe the fire company began their barbecue later on in 1974 or 1975.
