A CHICKEN BARBECUE, presented by the Marlborough Sons and Daughters of Italy Lodge #240, was held recently at the Marlborough Fish & Game Club. This was the annual throw-back to the BBQ with the Benedetto family cooking their famous barbecue in days past when they cooked for St. Ann’s Festival. The lack of kitchen facilities for the Benedettos made it necessary to change chefs but it didn’t mean that the Benedettos were not at the event. There were Benedettos everywhere enjoying the chicken and other menu items prepared by The Buffet Way. Proceeds will support the Lodge’s scholarship and charitable endeavors.
