Enjoy Cornwall Fire Department chicken this Sunday
CORNWALL — The Cornwall Volunteer Fire Department will hold its annual chicken barbecue on Sunday, Aug. 9, from noon to 2 p.m. (or until the chicken runs out). There is a twist this year. The firefighters will run the even as a drive-through pickup event rather than the traditional eat-in event at the fire station.
To help with traffic management the drive-through pick-up will take place at the Cornwall Elementary School parking lot rather than the fire station. Payment will be by donation — take what you want, pay what you can. A department member will take your cash or check made out to CVFD (there will be no change available) and then direct your car to a line where you can order and receive your chicken dinners (including baked beans, salad, a roll and a cookie) or plain half-chickens.
There will be limited parking at the school for those who would like to bring a blanket or lawn chairs to eat on the school grounds (note that there will be no access to the building or restrooms, however.) People should observe physical distancing recommendations if eating at the school.
