Mark Sunday Aug. 26 on your calendar right now. And plan to head to the American Legion Post 488 on Lakes Road in Monroe from 2 - 6 pm for the Orange County Tavern and Restaurant Association's Annual BBQ to benefit Orange County Veterans. It's always a good thing when you can have fun and help a worthwhile cause.

The day is going to be a fun one with live Music from Hillbilly Parade. Your $40 ticket gets you beer, wine, soda, and water, and liquor company tastings. There will also be a cash bar available. And talk about lots of food. Raw clams, hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, sausage and peppers, corn on the cob, and lots of salads. Something for everyone.

The BBQ will be held rain or shine. Bring I.D., nobody under 21 will be admitted. For more information about the Country and Blues BBQ to benefit Orange County Veterans, visit the O.C. Restaurant and Tavern's website.
