The Chicken Barbecue was started in 1960 and was called the Country Fair. It was originally held at Lawrence School. In 1968, the name was changed from Country Fair to Chicken Barbecue.
Rose Glen was completed in 1978 and the first class started in September, 1979. Chicken Barbecue is one of our biggest fundraisers. This has been a traditional for 60 years. This fundraiser would not be possible without the help of the PTO, volunteers and the Rose Glen community. All of the money raised benefits our children. Besides raising money for the school, the Chicken Barbecue is a great way for the Rose Glen community to come together for family, food and fun.
In 2022 we were able to resume the full tradition of the Chicken Barbecue by welcoming all families and community members back to this wonderful in-person event. We are looking forward to another wonderful event in 2023.
With over a half-century of annual chicken bbqs, there are so many wonderful memories!
