Tucker Optimist Fall Barbecue — Nov 3

Tucker Optimist Club offers Barbecue Takeout in Tucker

The Tucker Optimist Club offers our fall barbecue fundraiser on November 3, 2018. The profits for the barbecue sale go to local youth-oriented projects. The chopped pork plates and half-a-chicken plates will be available at the barbecue pit across from the Tucker post office.  Plates will sell for $10, but you may pre-order a whole butt for $40.  The event will run from 11:00 AM until 3 PM, unless we sell out early.

The day of the barbecue starts at 4 am when the local cafeteria owner delivers the meat to the BBQ pits for cooking. Members are there to start the coals to begin cooking the pork Boston butts.

As the sun begins to rise the other members show up to help with preparation of the baked beans, cole slaw, and the chicken. When serving time begins, the assembly line starts up, and soon-to-be-satisfied customers pick up lunch or dinner.

 

Smart Lunch/Smart Kids

Members of the Tucker Optimist Club volunteered this summer to help prepare lunches for area children who participate in the school lunch program. Each time we helped make sack lunches for 200 to 250 children.  One of the times we helped was in conjunction with the Tucker Civic Association (TCA), the other two times with a neighborhood group. The picture is from the TCA event.

Our club worked with the Tucker Civic Association to clean up the South Fork Peachtree Creek.  It was a cool, brisk day for the volunteers who came to clean up the area.  The volunteers were divided into two groups to cover the area.  Over 65 tires were collected, a couch, shopping carts, golf club 5 iron, a recliner, a lobster trap (are there lobsters in South Fork Peachtree Creek???) and lots of trash!
