Rainy Wednesday


Weather  

Weather for today is supposed to be pretty wet and spotty for the rest of the week – keep your eyes on this post for updates about Thursday’s chicken BBQ by the FD and the Satin&Steel concert. VC Rick Roberts said the rain location for the concert will be the Baptist Church and if the show was cancelled there are not dates to fit in a reschedule.

The word, as of 1:31 p.m. Wednesday is the show must go on! So too, the chicken. George said the BBQ will go down unless a real monsoon blows into town, then the rain date would be Saturday, July 26 but ONLY if the weather is extreme; firefighters, especially chicken cooking firefighters have never been afraid of a little rain.

The band will make the call on performing, but they are aware of the alternate site for the show and haven’t informed the village of having any reservations about playing in the Baptist Church. So if it’s rainly, you can park in the same place just turn the opposite way any come over to the west side of Quaker Street instead.

Chicken

The Granville Engine and Hose chicken will go on rain or shine. Serving will begin about 5 p.m. $8 per. Word is they’re cooking up a few more this time after having to turn away a few hungry patrons last time.
