■ STAFF REPORT
The firefighters at the Boca Grande Fire Department are “firing up the grill” to host a BBQ rib luncheon in the fire truck bay to benefit the Boca Grande Firefighter Association & Benevolent Fund. 
The BBQ rib luncheon will be on Saturday, Jan. 18 starting at noon. The lunch includes ribs, baked beans, potato salad, a roll and a drink. Cost is $25 per person. 
The event starts at noon and will go until all the ribs are gone. It’s recommended that you get there early … there are some serious pit masters at the station!
The firefighters are also soliciting dessert donations for the luncheon.  Please drop donated baked goods at the station by 11:30 a.m. on Saturday. 
Boca Grande firefighter T-shirts and performance fabric shirts will also be available for purchase during the event. 
The Boca Grande Firefighters Association & Benevolent Fund 501(c)3 supports local scholarships, local cancer patients, firefighters, first responders and families in need in our community and elsewhere.
