We are pleased to note that on Friday, Nov. 16, from 4:30 until 7 p.m., there will be a Brooks barbecue chicken dinner at Christ Episcopal Church to benefit the church’s Global Mission Outreach. It should be mentioned, in case there is any confusion, that for the first time this fundraising dinner will be held on Friday instead of Saturday evening. The dinner will be held in the Parish House, at 69 Fair St., Cooperstown, and will feature Brooks chicken as well as coleslaw, baked potato, baked beans, roll, dessert and beverage. Both half chicken dinners,
at $10, and quarter chicken dinners, at $5, will be offered. Takeout meals will also be available. In addition to the dinner, there will also be a sale of homemade pies. For more information about the dinner, please contact the church office at 547-9555.
