Central Civitan members got up bright and early to get the BBQ pits ready. 900 chicken halves were slow cooked for the event.

“We have probably sold all the tickets, maybe too many, we might run out.” Pitts said.

On top of a delicious BBQ chicken dinner, the tickets are also good for a free regular 6″ sub at Subway when you buy any 6″ sub of equal or greater price and a 21oz drink. Offer is good only at the Subway located at 1200 Highway 40 & 13 in Clarksville, TN.

“We sure appreciate everyone’s support in this community. We give back at Central Civitan. The money raised goes back into the community,” Pitts stated.
