Tonight the members of the United Fire Company No .1 will begin the week long preparation for the Department's 64th Annual Chicken Barbecue to be held on Saturday.
Over the course of this week, CFD members will dedicate many hours of their time to prepare for this "end of the summer event". Members will gather at headquarters to prepare for this year's event under the direction of chairperson Mark Finnerty.
In any normal year, the sight of the large white tent on the firehouse grounds in Cutchogue can mean only one thing. It's time for the annual CFD Chicken Barbecue.
However, during the past year not much has been normal. In 2020, Covid-19 forced the cancellation of the barbecue in order to help ensure the safety of our loyal supporters.
This year, the Cutchogue Fire Department is pleased to announce that our Chicken Barbecue has returned for 2021, with some temporary changes.
To help ensure the safety of the public this years event will be a take-out only / Drive trough style event.
Tickets are still available at the firehouse, and can be purchased by stopping by or calling 631-734-6907
On that Saturday when you arrive, please follow the signs to the entrance and follow the directions given by our Fire Police Squad.
For 64 years, the members of United Fire Company No. 1, working side by side with the CFD Ladies Auxiliary have hosted this annual fundraising event.
The CFD would like to thank the community for making this event a 64 year tradition.
We eagerly look forward to the hosting the 2022 Barbecue under the tent.
