Mary Alice Reporting – A barbeque lunch will be available this Sunday as a fundraiser for the Tuscora Park Foundation.

Tickets are $10 and help support the non-profit’s mission to support the City of New Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Department.

Member Jan McInturf explains the BBQ chicken meals will be available from 11 am to 2 pm at Tuscora Park.

“It’ll be on the tennis court side of the park. It’s actually going to be a drive-thru pick-up. There are picnic tables and shelters out there so people can help themselves, but the plan is they’ll drive through, we’ll give them the chicken dinners, and they can take them with them or eat in the park.”

The foundation’s next goal is to raise money for a pickleball court, with $54,000 already raised for that $150,000 project.

A dedication is also planned Sunday for the new basketball courts.
