BEST IN SMOKE BBQ Competition Results

The Russell Volunteer Fire Department sponsored its 3rd Annual BEST IN SMOKE BBQ competition on Saturday, September 14th and a large crowd gathered in the park to cook, watch and enjoy the days festivities, including a parade, pie contests, BBQ contests, a tractor pull contest and later in the evening a street dance at The Southside Bar.
The Firemen did an excellent job again by bringing the community together. Thanks go to many, including the 26 sponsors; the judges; the Chariton Middle School Band; Mike and Dawn Beaty, who served as Grand Marshals, for both their contributions to the Community; Tony Irving, who sang the National Anthem; Bud Welch with his pedal tractors, which was enjoyed by many children and other parade participants; and to all who came and made it a great day.  The weather was great.
