JACKSON — The Jackson Firefighters Association announced earlier this year, that after 16 years, their fall bean dinner and car show fundraiser would be undergoing somewhat of a transformation.
Jackson Fire Chief David Channell told The Courier that since Ancil and Wanda Cross decided to step down from hosting the car show portion of the fundraiser, he felt that it was time to shift the event some.
Channell said that they would be having an open house at the fire station along with a bean dinner, cruise-in and kid’s games.
The event is set for Saturday, Oct. 5 at the Jackson Fire Station, located at 152 Pearl Street.
Activities include an open house showcasing the fire station, cruise-in, 50/50 drawing, music, inflatables, fire-related games for kids, Sparky the fire dog and food.
Cruise-in registration cost is $5, which will start at 10 a.m. Each registered vehicle will receive a chance at a prize. The prize will be drawn at 4:30 p.m.
The serving of food starts at 11 a.m. and will run until the food is gone.
The menu will feature soup beans and cornbread, pulled pork sandwiches, bratwurst, and hot dogs. There will also be Pepsi products for purchase.
All proceeds from the event benefit the Jackson Firefighters Association.
