By Amanda Gross, Andover Fish and Game Club volunteer

The Andover Fish and Game Club (AF&G) is holding its Annual Beef Barbecue and Chinese Auction on Saturday, August 19 from 5 to 6:30 PM at the Andover Elementary/Middle School. The Chinese Auction will follow the meal. Tickets for the Deer Pool and the Annual Gun Raffle can be purchased during the event. The gun will be raffled off at the Turkey Raffle in October.

The highlight of the meal includes juicy beef, fresh corn on the cob, and strawberries and ice cream for dessert. There will also be homemade side dishes provided by Club members and their spouses, who also prepare and serve the food during the event. Chinese Auction items, which include hunting and fishing paraphernalia, crafts, gift certificates, and much more, are donated by local businesses and individuals. The AF&G thanks everyone for their time and contributions.

The Beef Barbecue, as the AF&G’s biggest fundraiser of the year, provides funds for the two Kids’ Fishing Derbies and to send kids to the Barry Conservation Camp, which educates children on hunting, fishing, camping, and other outdoor skills.

For just $12 for adults and $5 for kids under 12 years old, come and enjoy a great meal and good company, and help the Andover Fish and Game Club raise money for their many community endeavors. For tickets and more information call 603-735-5311.
