The Elk Volunteer Fire Department celebrates 61 years of service at its 13th annual summer BBQ on Saturday, July 29, noon to 4:00 p.m. at the Greenwood Community Center in downtown Elk. Savor tri-tip, chicken or portabella mushroom entrees plus sides, dessert and coffee. Donation: $20 for adults, $10 for kids 7-12 (6 and under free). Enjoy a no-host bar featuring Elk’s famous Margaritas, live music, a raffle, and activities for kids. Come out and support the firefighters who serve Elk and provide mutual aid to surrounding communities. The annual BBQ generates critical funds to maintain the department and its equipment. Kindly leave the dogs at home. For more information, contact Clark Fish, 877-3494.
