The Kiwanis Club held a Chicken BBQ dinner in Wellsburg Thursday.

All proceeds going towards community projects.

The dinner included a baked potato, a roll, applesauce, a brownie, and, of course, BBQ chicken.

The Wellsburg Kiwanis Club is over 100 years old and they hold fundraisers in the community to help and support children.

Members say these fundraisers are so important because the money goes to help the dozens of projects.

We have shelters in our local community from Wellsburg, Follansbee, to Brooke Hills Park. We help with playgrounds, we support children. So it’s a way for community members to join together, come together under the name of Kiwanis for children in our community.”

Eric Fithyan – President Kiwanis Club

He says they had a great turn out.

The food was purchased and cooked at Parkhurst Dining at Bethany College.
