Annual BBQ Fundraiser for the Fairview Fire Department

The annual BBQ Fundraiser for the Fairview Fire Department will be held on Saturday, March 21, 10 am–8pm, rain or shine. There will be no shortage of barbecue this year and you can start getting it at 10 am if you’ve got an early hankering. Plates will cost $8 each with all the proceeds going to the Fire Department.

There will again be a silent auction (donations needed!) and every kind of dessert you can imagine for sale, as well.

Event organizers Tim and Becky Brewer of Smokey & the Pig Barbecue are looking forward to surpassing last year’s success. Tim said, “Last year we made $4500 for our Fire Department and this year we’re looking to raise $6,000! What better cause than to help the people that risk their lives to help us!”

Also, Brooke Brewer, Tim and Becky’s daughter, will run a “can” trailer as her senior project. So, save your aluminum cans and drop them by that day (or day before). The Fire Department will get the cash when they are turned in for aluminum recycling.

If you’d like to donate something useful or fun to the silent auction, or if you’d like to donate a cake or cookies or cupcakes or cake pops or fudge or absolutely anything delectable and sweet, please email  and let Candice know. Donation items or certificates may be dropped off at the Town Crier office (1185F Charlotte Highway) anytime (drop slot) or Monday–Friday, 1–5 pm before March 20. Dessert donations should be dropped off at the firehouse on Charlotte Highway by 9 am the morning of March 21 please.
