Saturday, U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston will have his annual Friends of Jack Kingston Barbecue. This year’s is in Long County.
The annual event, which has been held in Bryan, Liberty and Chatham counties in the past, will be held at The Clubhouse in Rye Patch.
“We are glad to be
having Congressman Kingston here, and we are going all out for the day,” Clubhouse owner Tim Works said.
Last month, Kingston showed up at the facility for a tour and praised the location and the people in the area.
“My first impression (of The Clubhouse in Rye Patch) is that it looks even better in person, the Web site doesn’t do the place justice,” the Savannah Republican said.
It is estimated that more than 500 people will attend.
“Everyone is welcome.” Kingston’s district representative Brooke Floyd said. “We just need an accurate count of how many we can expect so we are asking that if people are going to attend, that they please let us know.”
Congress convened in Washington this week, but Kingston is expected back for the weekend.
Last year, the barbecue was in Glynn County at the Fairgrounds Exchange Club, with the cookout drawing more than 400 hungry supporters. For more information on the day, or if anyone wishes to attend, contact Kingston’s Savannah office at (912) 356-5200 to secure their place at the table.
