The Kendall Lions Club is holding their annual chicken barbecue on Saturday, February 2.  Pick-up dinners between noon and 2 p.m. at the Kendall United Methodist Church. Donation is $10 with take-outs only. This year proceeds will benefit Teresa Leicht and her family. Teresa has been battling cancer for quite some time. Her husband, Peter, is a physical education teacher at Kendall Jr. Sr. High School and has impacted the lives of Kendall students in his teaching and in his roles as coach and athletic director.  Tickets can be purchased from any Lion or by emailing  Advance sale tickets only, available until January 26.

From its inception in 2004, Lion Phil D’Agostino has chaired and developed the chicken barbecue into one of the club’s most successful fundraisers with proceeds going directly to the community. Held each year the Saturday before the big football game, many Kendall residents have received aid with medical bills due to accidents, cancer, illness, etc. While assisting an individual or family in need is the club’s first choice, they have also in the past used funds to support youth programs in the community, purchase an AED for the fire department and support the school.

Residents and friends of the Kendall community are invited to support the benefit and enjoy a taste of summer in the middle of winter.
