the fourth saturday each june
The BBQ fundraiser began in the 1980s. Lifelong Pine Mountain resident Telitha remembers that each year around the 4th of July, the community enjoyed BBQ meals while the youth played T-ball games against teams from Oneonta and Nectar on the original baseball field (bordering Pine Mountain Road). Funds supported the Fire Department and the Community Center. See the History section on Bluegrass Jamboree for history of bluegrass on the mountain and the joining with the BBQ fundraiser.
The information on this page is from the May 2022 PMCC meeting, the BBQ planning meetings in June 2022, from a conversation with Mickey & Connie in August 2022, from PMCC Secretary Gwen Brady’s email from June 5, 2022, and from my own experience as a volunteer and attendee at the 2022 event.
