(Shenandoah) – Leaders of the Forum to Revitalize Shenandoah are paying tribute next month to its volunteer army.
Recently, the Shenandoah City Council approved the forum’s request for a street closure on Sheridan Avenue from Elm to Blossom Streets on September 17 from 3-6 p.m. Mace Hensen co-chaired the forum’s ShenDig BBQ Contest committee. Hensen says plans include a special celebration to honor the volunteers who helped make last month’s first-ever barbecue in the city a success.
“We had over 125 volunteers for the Shenandoah ShenDig BBQ Contest,” Hensen said. “We think it’s absolutely amazing.”
The celebration includes food from Madwood Barbecue. Volunteers, sponsors and special guests are asked to stop by the blue awning in front of Brown’s Shoe Fit that evening to register and pick up a dinner ticket. Tickets are available at 4:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 5 p.m. Forum officials are planning a special program at 5:30 p.m. to recognize volunteers and announce the dates for the 2023 ShenDig event.
