The Pig Roasted by John Jackson was served with French Fries, Baked Beans, Coleslaw and Plenty of Deserts. The Ladies Aux. hosted games and prizes for the kids. The Ladies Aux. were called into action to put out the Pig Cooker when a flare-up almost burned up the Pork BBQ while Members of the Lewisburg Fire Deparment were called away on a Hay Field Fire.
