Councilman David Tandy (D-4) is continuing a tradition of inviting residents to an old fashion cookout and community get-together the first weekend in October.

The Willie B. Bright Community BBQ will get underway Beginning at 12:00 noon to 4:00pm on Saturday, October 4th at Shelby Park in front of the Community Center at 600 East Oak Street..

Last year was the largest crowd ever with almost 700 residents attending. Entertainment for adults and activities for children will be provided.  Ribs, chicken, burgers, baked beans, cole slaw, chips and dessert will be served.

“I believe that when people in a community take the time to get to know one another and learn that we have more things in common than we have differences there is nothing that we can't accomplish,” says Tandy.  

Willie B. Bright was a businessman and community activist prior to his being first elected District 4 Councilman in 2002. Mr. Bright passed away in 2004.

“Councilman Bright was a man who believed that elected leaders should always be engaged with the people that they served,” says Tandy. “The continuation of this community bar-b-que is a way for us to honor the memory of a good friend to the community and for everyone, in an informal setting, to have an opportunity talk with their elected officials.”
