“Due to a variety of reasons, the Westmont Lions will not be continuing the annual professional BBQ competition,” said Lions Club President Bob Fleck. “However, we will continue our local Backyard BBQ event, which encourages all of our local chefs to come out and participate in this fun, amateur competition. We will also have a Saturday night band performance leading up to the fireworks display starting at 8 p.m. We invite the entire community to attend.”
