UNK Pikes gather around a local firetruck at last year's Fireman's Barbecue. This year's barbecue will be in a different location, but will hopefully draw the same crowd.

Fraternity teams up with local firemen for benefit


Early Sunday morning, March 13, the gentlemen of Pi Kappa Alpha will be working together to begin preparing meals for the Fireman’s Barbeque downtown.  The barbeque is put on as a local event to benefit Kearney Volunteer Fire Department.  

“This is a great opportunity for our students and other community members to give back to people who give us so much,” said Kent Schumacher, a junior industrial distribution major from Lindsay and the chair of the Fireman’s Barbeque. All profits from ticket sales will go towards the Kearney Volunteer Fire Department.

The event is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Fire Hall at 2211 Avenue A, on the bricks in downtown Kearney. The menu includes pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, chips and dessert. Tickets are $5 per person and can be purchased at the door or by contacting Schumacher.

Schumacher said, “We hope to have a great turnout, especially with how much these volunteers help the entire community. It’s time for us to give back to them.”
