LESSLIE — The annual barbecue at Lesslie Volunteer Fire Department is Friday and Saturday at the main station, 3191 Lesslie Highway.
Lesslie firefighters, whose coverage area runs from the Rock Hill city limits to the Lancaster and Chester county lines, handled 418 calls for service in 2013, with more than 3,000 hours of volunteer service.
The barbecue fundraiser, in its 56th year, is the oldest continuing benefit in York County. All proceeds are used to buy equipment for the stations. Aside from a special tax district, the benefit is the sole way that volunteers can purchase the lifesaving tools needed to help others.
We are proud to serve the people of Lesslie and this barbecue has always been important to helping us do that, said Lesslie Assistant Chief Tommy White.
Sales start at 11 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Plates that include beans and a roll are $8, and sandwiches are $3. All the pork is cooked on site, and the cole slaw and sauce are handmade. Baked goods will also be on sale. Delivery is available for orders of 10 plates or more.
For information, call the main station at 803-324-0828.
