Dunkirk Elks Having RIBS on the Barbie

Have you had your share of barbecue chicken dinners? Sure, they all taste good when the season first begins, but after the fifth or sixth, aren’t you ready for something new? The Dunkirk Elks’ Lodge has just what you are looking for.

On Saturday, Aug. 3 at the Lodge located at 428 Central Ave. in Dunkirk, there will be RIBS on the barbie. The lodge members will be busy grilling and fixing the sides. There is no way anyone will leave hungry after being served ribs, potato salad, mac and cheese, green beans, green leafy salad, and a dinner roll. When you are finished with your dinner, hopefully you will have room for dessert. All of this for only $12 per person.

Hours for dining are 2 to 6 p.m.,or until sold out. Come early to be sure to get a meal. Meals may be enjoyed inside the lodge and are available for take-out. Elks members hope to see many faces come out to enjoy ribs on the barbie.

The Elks would like to thank the generosity of Save A Lot for their continued support of the Dunkirk Elks Lodge.
