Where there’s smoke ... there’s fun!

Members of the Wyanet Community Club man the grill at the Wyanet Locker at a recent Saturday cookout.

The Wyanet Locker makes their facility available for many not-for-profit organizations to host a cookout, complete with grilled Wyanet Locker meats, chips, soda, sometimes a bake sale and more.

On this particular day, the Wyanet Community Club was hosting the cookout, however, many area groups have been known to take advantage of the Wyanet Locker’s generosity.

Watch for cookouts nearly every Saturday at the Wyanet Locker.

Other area businesses also lend their sites to groups raising money for a variety of causes. Sullivan’s Foods in Princeton hosts many cookouts throughout the year, as does the Tractor Supply Co., both on Princeton’s North Main Street.
