The reason the music committee was raising money this year was for new band uniforms. They also intended on using any leftover money on needed equipment for both band and choir. While they had no set goal for money, they intended to make at least one thousands dollars. The big benefactor to those barbecues are the businesses in town who placed large orders from the stand.
An issue this year for the barbecue is the price of pork. The past year, a virus swept through pigs and drastically decreased the amount of pork on the market this year, which increased the price of pork.
Even though there was an issue with the prices, the barbecue was a success, and they managed to sell out this year as well. -by Robert Cichon
