Group will honor first responders and vets.
The Cape Fear “A” Conference is celebrating 150 years with a special event on June 23 and to do it, they’re inviting the community.
Church Elder Laeulia Lisane said the event is not only a celebration of the church, but the community as a whole.
“This community event is in recognition of our 150th year and to convey the importance of community connections,” she said. “As we celebrate our rich heritage, the necessity to applaud the surrounding community is imperative for each accomplishment and milestone achieved.”
The highlight of the event is the day-long Barbecue Cook-Off Feast. It features pork, turkey and chicken and runs from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the campus of Cape Fear “A” Conference located at 25 Beaver Road, Erwin.
In addition to the cook-off there’s also a car show and contest, a motorcycle contest, music, a bake-off, prizes and several vendors.
Admission to the event is free and along with honoring the church, the military, first responders and law enforcement will also be recognized and honored for their service to the community.
“We welcome the community in hopes of a fun-filled day,” Elder Lisane said. “We are grateful for law enforcement, the military and first responders and are proud to honor them during this event.”
