 The Mount Washington AARP Chapter will host a Veterans Day BBQ Blast on Friday, Nov. 11, at the Ralph Lutes Senior Citizens Center in Mount Washington.

The evening will begin with a Veterans Day tribute at 6 p.m. followed by a BBQ supper at 6:15 p.m.

The evening will continue with John Wigginton providing musical entertainment with a dessert and gift auction and raffle.

Many businesses in the area have supplied gift cards and gifts for the auction and raffle. This is the major fund-raiser for the Mount Washington AARP chapter.

With the funds, the chapter finances service projects such as the Mount Washington Angel Tree program, holiday gifts for several veterans and nursing home residents and donations to the Mount Washington Community Ministries food pantry.

The BBQ dinner, which costs $6, will include a BBQ sandwich, salad, drink and light dessert.

The auction, music and raffle begins at 7 p.m.

This is open to the public. You do not need to be an AARP member to attend.

The center is located on Delania Drive off Highway 44 East in Mount Washington.
