The Logan County DD hosted its 25th annual chicken barbecue under sunny skies Thursday at the RTC Industries Building on State Route 47 West.
Hundreds of local residents (pictured) purchased the chicken dinners, which sold for $7 apiece.
WPKO's Chad Wilkinson, who hosted a live broadcast from 4-6 pm, reports that 3,200 dinners were prepared.
Superintendent Saul Bauer was leading his first chicken barbecue.
He said more than 1,000 presale tickets were sold.
Bauer said the proceeds raised help in many ways, including money for levy campaigns, funds for programs like an adult dinner each Thanksgiving, the preschool program, and helping needy families each Christmas.
