Smokin’ jack, DCSF team up for fund-raiser

Spring break will be over Monday and local children will head back to school.

With students back in classrooms that means teachers, administrators and the Demopolis City Schools Foundation will be back at work.

In these tough economic times, normally generous city residents have found it increasingly difficult to help out our schools financially.

Next Sunday, Demopolis residents will have the opportunity to have Sunday dinner without all the fuss of preparation while supporting Demopolis City Schools at the same time.

Demopolis High School is hosting a Sunday Dinner on Sunday, March 29, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

For $10 a plate, dinners will be served. Plates will include half a smoked chicken, coleslaw, a choice of baked beans or macaroni and cheese, rolls and sweet tea.

Those who purchase dinners may choose to eat in or take out.

The meals are being prepared by Smokin’ Jack’s Bar-B-Que and will benefit the Demopolis City Schools Foundation as part of the annual Schoolfest activities.

Tickets are available at Demopolis High School or from any teacher or administrator at the high school, according to Annie Robertson, chairman of Schoolfest events.

Everyone could use a good dinner and being able to help the local school system at the same time is a fitting dessert.
