Celebrate summer with an outdoor southern-style Pig Roast and accompanying favorite picnic foods on the lawn of St. Luke's Church, 313 Main Street, Chester, VT, on Saturday August 20, 4-7 PM.

Barbecue-pitmaster Jessie Pixley will smoke the beast on location, and picnic specialties will be prepared by seasoned cooks. Favorite homemade side dishes include potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans, and cookies for dessert. Plus rolls, hot and cold drinks, and several different sauces created by grill master Jessie. Enjoy delicious food at tables on the back lawn of the church while playing lawn games or do take-out for the gang to enjoy at home. With summer heat and picnic pests in mind, as well as health precautions, side dishes will be packaged so distribution will be fast, clean, and perfect for transporting to a table or back to your house.
