Endicott Sertoma has been serving the community for decades and today they served again only this time it was with their 39th annual chicken barbecue held in the parking lot near Union-Endicott High School.  Phil's Chicken House provided the chicken and Endicott Sertoma provided the side dishes and volunteers.

Sertoma members said they expected to sell between 1500 and 2000 dinners.  Diners were able to drive-up, order the number of dinners they wanted and then drive through another group of volunteers who filled the orders.

Along with the barbecue chicken Endicott Sertoma provided sides of cole slaw and macaroni salad and a roll and butter with each dinner.

Sertoma members sell tickets and spend several days preparing side orders to accompany the meal.  Dozens of club members volunteer their time to help with one of their prime fund-raisers each year.

Sertoma, which stands for "service to mankind" contributes to a number of causes each year with a special focus on issues involving speech and hearing.
