Discovery High School to Host Annual Barbecue

On Friday, September 30th, 2016, Discovery High School will be combining their annual team-building field trip at the park with their first barbecue of the year!  That means the BBQ can be picked up at South Side Park in Newton.

Tickets for BBQ plates are still only $8 and will be sold in advance by Discovery students for the next few weeks.  All money sold from the tickets will go to the school as means of general fundraising.

The BBQ will be cooked outdoors and be distributed at the park. Any student who would like to assist in this event will have the opportunity to earn community service hours.

The fundraiser will last from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, and anyone in the Newton-Conover area who orders five or more plates is eligible for delivery!

So what is on the plate?  Barbecue pork, chips, a roll, baked beans, coleslaw, and dessert will be provided per ticket; you must bring your ticket to receive a plate.

Help support Discovery High School and enjoy some quality barbecue pork!
