Chicken, pulled pork meal set

TROY — The Troy Lions Club and the Troy Church of the Brethren will jointly sell chicken barbecue and pulled pork sandwich dinners on Saturday, March 19. Eat-in or carry-out from the Troy Church of the Brethren, 1431 W. Main St., Troy, from 4-6 pm. Dinners include a choice of a half chicken or large pulled pork sandwich with baked beans and homemade coleslaw. Tickets are $8.50 and can be purchased at the church, from any Troy Lion member or by calling 339-0460. A selection of desserts is available for an extra charge. Walk-ins are welcome while the dinners last.

“It’s a nice collaboration between the Church of the Brethren and the Troy Lions Club” said Mel Ward, a member of both organizations.

Proceeds from the dinner will go towards the church’s youth group and the Troy Lions Club vision health fund.

“We have been holding these joint diners for several years now and it really works well for both groups” he added. “Lots of repeat customers and as the word spread how good the dinners are, the attendance continues to grow.”

The Troy Lions Club is a non-profit community service organization serving Troy, Covington, Pleasant Hill, Piqua, Tipp City, and surrounding areas of Miami County since 1942. Their primary mission is vision health.
