Yum! Yum! That’s the sound of a satisfied consumer after a plate of Hickory Grove’s famous chicken pilau. (That’s chicken and rice to non-French readers.) That delightful dish is the centerpiece of a fund-raising event set for Saturday, July 13, at the Methodist Co-op Center on Hwy. 145. Folks can enjoy the pilaf along with slaw, pickles, green beans, tomato slices, and rolls beginning at 11:00 a.m. and running until 3:00 p.m. If just a bowl of it will suit you, then just a bowl is what you will get. You can dine in or take out. Dessert will be extra (this is a fundraiser, after all) and bake-sale items will be plentiful and scrumptious. Throughout the day, diners will enjoy bluegrass and choir music. Then about 1:00 p.m., Ab Townsend will take the auctioneer’s stand to auction a hand-made quilt donated by the Pine Tree Quilters. The dinners will be served for donations to helping build the new Methodist Youth Ranch near Pinetta. All proceeds will go toward constructing a chapel for the children at the ranch. This event is sponsored by the Hanson, Hickory Grove, Pinetta, and Rocky Springs United Methodist churches. Everyone is welcome.
