CT barbecue
a 53-year-old recipe for success

Bobby Lee loads a trailer during the clean-up Saturday of the Charlotte Thompson Community Center in preparation for the barbecue. The barbecue will be held Thursday from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The “Cue,” as Charlotte Thompson locals call it, has been a community staple since 1958. And as the late Betty Garber wrote in 1985, “There will be a general stampede in the direction of the Charlotte Thompson Community tomorrow.” The tradition continues Thursday -- tomorrow-- at the Charlotte Thompson Community Center from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Hearty plates are $8 and all proceeds are divided between the upkeep of the community center and the Charlotte Thompson Volunteer Fire Department.
