The Medfield Firefighters Relief Association's annual chicken barbecue has been a town tradition for over 20 years. This year's event will be held at the fire department on June 16.
Dinner is a continuous serving starting at 4:30 p.m., take-out is also available. The cost is $7 for a half chicken and $5 for a quarter chicken. Tickets are available from any firefighter, at the station or at the door.
Last year, roughly 500 meals were sold to the community to benefit the Firefighters Relief Association, a local fund whose mission is to aid firefighters injured while in the performance of their duties. In addition, a portion of the proceeds is earmarked for the Home Committee, which provides meals for senior citizens during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
The MFD also donates to Relay For Life and provides two scholarships for graduating Medfield High School seniors, each year. Money raised from the barbecue also goes towards the upkeep for several antique pieces of firefighting equipment, which the department owns.
