Chicken dinners

Diana Thomas of Grandma’s Backyard BBQ removes chicken from the grill. She is to be preparing the main course for the 12th annual St. Francis Spirituality Center benefit.

The benefit is 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Sept. 8 in Elizabeth Schaefer Auditorium at St. Francis. The cost is $10 for a half-chicken and $8 for a quarter. A children’s meal of chicken nuggets is $3.50.

In addition to the meal, a cash raffle is to be conducted with prizes of $600, $400 and $200. A 50/50 raffle also is to take place and many items have been donated for a silent auction.
