The rain didn't stop people from coming out to the annual Randolph-Hampton Fire District's chicken BBQ on Saturday, August 20. The Randolph Chicken Barbecue which usually feeds over 2,500 served 1,937 this year. According to Chairperson Greg Endres (Cowboy), "We like to serve at least 2,000 dinners, but with the rain most of the day, we are grateful to the community for the their continued support, and coming even though the weather wasn't very favorable." He also commented "I would also like to thank my fellow firemen who also make this annual event happen. It's definitely a team effort and everyone is to be commended for their help." While folks were standing in line to purchase tickets, they were able to enjoy the view of this beautiful rainbow. Next year's chicken BBQ, the 3rd Saturday in August, will be their 50th year and will also be Randolph's all school reunion as they celebrate 100 years.
