The annual chicken barbecue featured more than 1,000 meals served on Sept. 21. This year's top seller was Kimberly Eschedor. The second place award belongs to Liz Hirzel, and the third place award goes to Kirsten Ameling.
Another one of the chapter's largest fundraisers is the annual Citrus Sale. Members sell fruit, meats, nuts, and popcorn to friends, family, and community members during the months of October and November.
This year, the top three sellers were only separated from each other by a total of $24. This is the closest it has been in years, showing the great work of all the members. All three of the top salesmen sold more than $1,600 worth of fruit and other items each.
