••• 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.
