Chilson Fire Dept Annual Chicken BBQ July 13th

Chilson Volunteer Fire Departments new TA135This year’s Annual Chilson Volunteer Fire Department Chicken Barbecue has been set for Saturday, July 13th from noon until 5 pm at the fire department’s Chilson Community House, 60 Putts Pond Road.

The Chilson BBQ Chicken dinner with all the fixins will be served from 2 to 4 pm, at a cost of $12. There will be entertainment all day by local musicians, and of course raffles for prizes.

The department’s newest fire apparatus will be on display, too: the 3,000-gallon Tanker 135. It’s a workhorse of a truck that can bring lifesaving water power to fire scenes where hydrants or open water sources aren’t available – a common situation in the Chilson Fire Protection District.

Again this year the department is inviting local vendors and exhibitors of non-food items to join them and their more than 200 guests for an afternoon of community fun. Interested vendors can e-mail or call (518) 503-5067.

Dinner tickets go on sale at 11 am on the day of the event, or can be purchased on any Tuesday evening at the firehouse, 7 to 9 pm. For advance BBQ ticket sales send an e-mail to, or call (518) 585-6951.

Last year’s BBQ was a sellout, so get your tickets early.
