The delicious barbeque Chicken is served with baked potatoes, coun¬ try style vegetable said, rolls and butter, and baked beans, all pre¬ pared by the wives of the Lions club members. The Lions them¬ selves cook the chicken In a rather unique fashion over charcoal, plac¬ ing the chickens between two gra¬ tes and turning them periodically so that they will be done to a gold¬ en brown on both sides. The chickens for the barbeque come from the Marlowe Feed and Hatchery. Mr. Marlowe, an active member of the Lions Club makes certain that the chickens are fat¬ tened to a tender size suitable for open pit brolltng. The succulent barbeque sauce is prepared from a special recipe. In past years the Lions Club bar¬ beque has been one of the high¬ lights on the Huntley community scene.
