Peachtree City UMC gears up for ninth annual Chicken-Que Sept. 21
On Sept. 21 the fire-pits will light up at 3 a.m. for the ninth annual Chicken-Que at Peachtree City United Methodist Church. The United Methodist Men will once again man the grills for what has become a much anticipated event.
Earlier in the week, the front lawn of the church at 400 Windgate Road (corner of Peachtree Parkway and Windgate Road) will be converted to a 60-foot long grill ready to cook to perfection over 2,000 chicken halves for the event.
Cole slaw, baked beans and a slice of bread complete the meal which is still priced at only $8.
The Chicken-Que is a take-out only event and those purchasing dinners in advance don’t even have to get out of their car. They can drive through the campus between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Sept. 21 and have their hot meals handed to them.
Once again this year, the UMM will be providing meals to first responders on duty on Sept. 21. Those purchasing an extra ticket will help cover the cost of a meal for a police officer or firefighter.
Proceeds from the Chicken-Que go to support the ongoing development and maintenance of the PTCUMC Scout Lodge, a 7,000 square foot facility of the church located in a wooded area of the Robinson Road Campus. The lodge is home to Scouting units from the Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts chartered by the church and also serves as a resource for the church’s other youth and children’s programs.
