UNION — The Union Masonic Lodge 31 will be holding a benefit chicken barbecue on Saturday, August 15, from noon to 3 p.m. The event will be held at the Lodge located at 149 Sennebec Road in Union.
The dinner will consist of a chicken leg quarter or chicken breast, corn on the cob, potato salad, cole slaw, roll and drink. This is free to the public, however donations will be accepted. All proceeds from the dinner will be used for Lodge improvements.
Because of the current pandemic the BBQ will be set up as a drive thru process at the Masonic Lodge parking lot. However, there will be picnic tables set up on the Masonic Lodge grounds for people to utilize if they desire.
“Along with the State of Maine's 200th Anniversary being celebrated this year, it is also the Union Masonic Lodge's 200th birthday as it was founded in 1820,” said Gary Roberts, Master of the Union Masonic Lodge. “We have appreciated the support of the community over the years and this barbecue is one way we want to say thank you to the Union area communities."
The event will be held rain or shine as it is a drive thru set up.
