The Pine Mountain Fire Department’s 22nd Annual Memorial Day BBQ
proved a tremendous success.
Held on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, the BBQ is the single
largest fund-raiser conducted by the department each year.
Coinciding with the Masters Water Ski and Wakeboard Tournament held
at Callaway Gardens, the BBQ draws considerable repeat customers
from the community along with visitors to the area.
And business was very brisk on Saturday, May 30.
In fact, the fire department sold out of BBQ by 12:30 p.m.
“We had a group of women that stopped and talked with us for a
while. They come from the Atlanta area and have been repeat
customers buying BBQ plates. They look for us each year,” said Fire
Chief Andy Kober.
Firefighters are already looking forward to Memorial Day 2016 and
preparing more Boston Butts and adding another item to the meal.
