First responders in Barton County are invited to a free chicken barbecue dinner, from 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 31, at the Dillons No. 3, 1811 Main St. in Great Bend. It will be open to all law enforcement officers and firefighters, said Bob Allen, one of the cooks.
“It’s just a great big Thank You,” Allen said. “We are showing our appreciation for the jobs they do.”
Michael Prescott, manager of the store’s meat department, said the store reached out to the community seeking donations to help Dillons sponsor the dinner. “We had a great response.”
