Dead River Company fed the people of Woodstock for a good cause at an event Friday.
The heating fuel business treated customers and non-customers to barbecue and music at its Woodstock location from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Attendees were asked to donate an item of non-perishable food to give to the Woodstock Community Food Shelf.
“I’ve done it in the other three locations and it’s been a success,” said Dead River Company area manager Gary Haines.
Dead River also showed off some propane-fueled appliances at the event, including a grill, fridge, outdoor fireplace and an outdoor fire pit. The display is planned as a permanent fixture for employees and residents to enjoy.Event-goers line up for the free barbecue. Ward Mann, right, the operator of Hog Heaven BBQ, and Doug Leonard of Woodstock greet people with barbecue chicken, pulled pork, baked beans, cole slaw and potato salad. Sally Weglarz helps people sign up to win a gas grill and 100 gallons of heating fuel.
