The Sherman Community Church will hold an old-fashioned chicken barbecue on Sept. 7 from 3:30 p.m. until dinners are sold out. The event will be held rain or shine. Dinners are $8 for adults and feature half a chicken; children's dinners are $6 and include a quarter of a chicken. All meals are served with macaroni salad, baked beans, rolls and homemade pie. Take-out is available. Proceeds will defray the cost of repairing the steeple. The church is located at 107 Church St. in Sherman.
