Guests from the local area and beyond visited the Delaware Township Volunteer Ambulance Corp. which held its annual charity chicken barbecue on Sunday, May 24 in Dingmans Ferry.

The smell of food being grilled also attracted visitors at the nearby George W. Childs Park which is part of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.

Grilled chicken, scalloped potatoes, corn, green beans, cole slaw and cranberry sauce along with a variety of baked goods were on the menu. Bottled water and other beverages including a selection of wines were available to wash it all down with.

Kannebecker Law of Milford, Dingmans Bridge, Dingmans Flowers, Tri-State Computers, LTD. of Matamoras and Sister's Deli of Dingmans Ferry were among several sponsors of this year's barbecue.

Arts and crafts vendors from the region also displayed their products.

And a good barbecue would not be complete without some quality music. The Red Pandas from Pleasant Valley High School in Brodheadsville, Pa. were among the musical acts. The band consists of four students, Rachel Wild, Gabby Hochfeld, Bryan Ladisernia and Jacob Clifford.

Registered guests got the chance to participate in a 50/50 Raffle for the Celeste C. Egidio Memorial Scholarship Fund. The proceeds are used to award a scholarship to a Delaware Valley High School graduate pursuing a career in the medical field. The scholarship is in honor of a former Delaware Township Volunteer Ambulance Corp. volunteer who died several years ago.

The Delaware Township Volunteer Ambulance Corp. barbecue is their biggest fund raiser of the year. Money raised from this event is used towards the purchase of equipment and other ambulance corp. related business.

The Ambulance Corp. is in need of volunteers and accept donations year round. For more information on how to become a volunteer or donate, visit
