Fair BBQ a smokin’ success

 All ages of hungry patrons were forming long lines to enjoy a BBQ meal sponsored by the Imperial Young Farmers & Ranchers at the Chase County Fair.
    Young Farmers & Ranchers’ Advisor, Jason Speck, said they served a little over 825 people. Proceeds from the BBQ went into the Young Farmers account to be designated for various needs of the ag youth in the community.
Pie and ice cream booth
    The Knights of Columbus sponsored a booth of pie and ice cream alongside the Young Farmers & Ranchers BBQ.
    The $1,600 in proceeds from the pie & ice cream sales were given to the Gittlein family.
    Regan Gittlein continues to recuperate in Greeley, Colo., from a July 16 accident.
