The folks at AJ Powers Lodge/Plank Road Station are at it again, with an evening of entertainment Sept. 21 you’ll want to be part of.
The talents of members of the Weogufka Chapter of the Nashville Songwriters Association are lined up to entertain and the lodge members are cooking up some of the favorite fare they’re becomes so well known for.
The occasion is one to raise funds for the continuing restoration of the lodge, and seating will be available both inside and out, said lodge member Joyce Howard.
There is a $5 donation for the entertainment, and the food will include the lodge’s own members preparing what has become their renown barbecue, headed up by Joyce Howard and Joe Gable.
And if you’re looking for Howard’s well- loved special barbecue sauce to take home, it’s going to be available, too, along with homemade canned goods and all kinds of baked goods, said lodge member Becky Griffin.
Along with their barbecue sandwiches, lodge members will offer hot dogs and nachos along with deluxe nachos and serve iced tea and lemonade.
The entertainment starts at 6 p.m. and there’s extra parking available in the Winterboro School parking lot next door to the lodge.
In addition to the music and food, author and musician Cabot Barden will be present with his book, “It’s the Bass Player.”
It’s a story of Barden and his fellow band mates and the experiences they had playing music at frat parties, bars – anywhere they could get a paying show – and tells about growing up and trying to make it in the music business.
Barden will have his book available and many of the performers will have CDs of their music available.
“Come early to get a good seat, mix and mingle and enjoy our fine cooking,” Howard said. “It will be a great time.”
