The Shelby County Veterans Fund will have their third annual Drive-Through Cookout on Saturday, August 26 at the 4-H Fairgrounds. Those looking for food and wanting to support a good cause can come out from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the 26th. All proceeds from the event will go towards the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight program.
Andrew Cichalewski is one of the organizers of the cookout. He says the event started when he heard about the Honor Flight program and the need to support taking veterans to D.C.
Cichalewski says it takes the help of many people to put the event together each year.
Pork tenderloin and rope sausage will be available at the cookout, with one plate costing three dollars or four plates for ten. There will be a bake sale and drinks available as well, and raffle tickets will be sold for a variety of prizes.
