Remembering a part of Eldersburg/Sykesville history, the once-beloved Chicken Barbecue of the 1970s and ‘80s at Saint Joseph Catholic Community is returning on Saturday, Aug. 11 from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on its picnic grounds, 915 Liberty Road in Eldersburg. The church is advertising “yesterday” prices for advance sale tickets.
Roy and Doris Wagner remember the Chicken Dinner as “a wonderful event with great food including local donations of corn on the cob and tomatoes with white elephant booths including numerous plants being offered for sale.
Saint Joseph Catholic Community celebrates its 150 Jubilee with a look to the future inviting all friends and parishioners to create new memories. The Knights of Columbus will again be at the fire pits grilling the chicken. In addition there will be Corn on the Cob, Baked Beans, Potato Chips, Watermelon, Tomatoes, Ice Cream and Desserts.
Fun-filled events throughout the day will include games for young and old: corn hole, volleyball, hula hoops; a 50/50 raffle and a Cake Auction at 2:30 p.m. The Carroll County Cloggers will perform at 3 p.m.
The Chicken Barbecue at Saint Joseph Catholic Community is part of a year-long Celebration of its 150th Jubilee: Our Journey in Christ: Remember, Celebrate, Dream. Other upcoming events included a Mission with Father Cedric Pisegna in September and a Homecoming and Open House in October. Old friends and new friends are invited to join with us at all social and ecumenical events.
All are invited to remember the wonderful blessings of times past; celebrate the great food and fellowership at the Barbecue and dream of the possibilities of life.
