CHICKEN BBQ & PIE AUCTION
The Chicken BBQ is
a long-standing tradition at Hidden Acres. For over 50 years, crowds have
joined us for an evening of great food & conversation to raise funds for
Hidden Acres' summer programs. Many volunteers come together to do everything from peeling carrots and cooking the sauce to washing picnic tables and preparing the fire pit. By the time the crowds arrive, a delicious meal has been prepared and is ready to enjoy. In 2006, a pie auction was added, showcasing pies donated by local churches. This has become a favourite part of the night as generous people head home with delicious pies to enjoy.
Over the years, a variety of groups provided music after dinner but the committee realized that the entertainment patrons relished the most was fellowshipping around tables with friends, neighbours and HAC staff.
