Fire Company Ox Roast Set For July 17-18 In M-burg
July 9, 2020
The Martinsburg Volunteer Fire Co. will hold its largest fundraiser of the year – the annual Ox Roast Festival – Friday, July 17, and Saturday, July 18, starting at 11 a.m. each day at the Alley Kitchen at Morrisons Cove Memorial Park.
Food will include ox roast sandwiches, fries, pies, drinks and much more.
There will be entertainment nightly.
Members of the fire company will set up tents and additional picnic tables to help with social distancing.
The fire company was unable to ask businesses for raffle ticket donations when the COVID-19 pandemic hit in the spring. The company recognized that state-mandated closures affected all businesses throughout the community, and its fundraising efforts have also been impacted by COVID-19. For this reason, the company will raffle off basket prizes instead of the usual raffle tickets on Saturday. Tickets will be available for purchase at the ox roast sale.
