Annual Allenton Fire Department BBQ Plate Sale Set for This Friday
Here in the South, we love our barbecue and this Friday is an extremely special day. The annual Allenton Volunteer Fire Department barbecue plate sale takes place.
The barbecue is always held on the very first Friday in the month of December and for the residents that live in the Allenton Fire District, this event kicks off Christmas 2023.
In talking to Allenton Fire Chief Tom Taylor, barbecue plates again will only be $5 each. Yes that’s right. $5.00 each.
The plate sale begins at 11:00am and goes until the food runs out. You may dine-in at the fire station or you may use the convenient drive-through. When you pull up, the Allenton volunteer firemen will take your money or your ticket and return with your plate or plates of food.
So why cook when you can enjoy a plate of delicious barbecue and help a great fire department raise money?
Also, for those dining in, check out the Bake Sale and the Craft Table.
The barbecue again is this Friday from 11am until at the Allenton Volunteer Fire Department located East of Lumberton on Highway 211. If you’re using your GPS, the exact address is 6815 North Carolina Highway 211 East Lumberton, NC 28358.
From Chief Tom Taylor, “special thanks to those who have purchased tickets in advance and thanks to those that will stop by the barbecue the day of the event.” Chief Taylor also said that he is humbled by the support the fire department has received over the past 60 years.
