St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church will hold its annual, open-to-the-public, Memorial Day BBQ before, during and after Ridgefield’s Memorial Day Parade this Monday. The church, located at 351 Main St., is a prime spot for parade watching. All sales proceeds will help fund a week-long HOPE trip, when 14 teen volunteers will travel to Frederick, Maryland, on a home repair mission.
The BBQ menu will include hamburgers and hot dogs, fresh off the grill. The featured item will once again be artisanal, smoked pulled pork and beef brisket, prepared by parishioners Mark Blandford and Andy Cartwright. Both cooks are grateful to Marshall Odeen, of Odeen’s BBQ, for lending them his professional smoker.
