The Lehigh Acres Senior Center Spring BBQ was held last Thursday on Plaza Drive and drew a large crowd of senior citizens. Center Director Teresa Perkins opened the festivities with a prayer. Board Member Chester Olsen led the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag.
Diners feasted on a reception of grilled chicken, potato salad, green beans, rolls, butter, beverages and tiers of very large, delicious cookies. Thanks to Kiwanis, Opal Lee, and LASC Member Bea Williams for extra donations specifically for the large new grill delivered and set up by Vann Banks, George McCollam and Chet Olson.
BBQ Chefs Peggie Halvorsen and Chet Olson had everyone served quickly.
