The Chesterton-Porter Rotary Club began its Barbecue Chicken Fundraiser nearly 10 years ago. Each year, on the 2nd Saturday of September, you will find Rotarians in the parking lot of 1st Source Bank on the south side of Chesterton from 10am to 3pm selling Nelson’s Golden Glow Port-a-Pit Chicken. Most importantly, one lucky Rotarian gets the privilege of donning the Chicken Suit!
This “fall off the bone” chicken is a favorite of many Chesterton-Porter Rotarians, and we’re confident you’ll be a raving fan as well. Tickets are pre-sold so the public can reserve their share. At 1pm that afternoon, the chickens will begin to be sold to the general public – so be sure to get yours early!
The Barbeque Chicken fundraiser has been used to fund contributions to the Chesterton Home Town Improvement Committee (CHIP), as well as our three annual Rotary scholarships.
