Rib sale Saturday raises money for Centennial

-A A +A

The Suwannee Valley Rotary Club is holding a slab o' ribs sale from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the parking lot at Walmart to raise money for the Chiefland Centennial Celebration. 

The city is not providing money for the April 5-6 celebration of the 100th anniversary of the first survey and platting of the city, so organizers are raising money by selling banners, bricks, lap blankets, silver commemorative coins and, of course, ribs. 

The celebration will have a parade, history exhibit with videos of citizens recalling the city in past years, festival, turkey, hog calling, barbecue and chili contests. 

It will culminate with the area's largest and brightest fireworks shows at Strickland Park.
