A local organization is selling more than 4 thousand meals at the Lamar Free Fair.

The Metro Club is on the square barbecuing for fair go-ers. It’s open pit style bbq, which is a technique that the Metro Club members say is not a common way to cook the meat anymore. All the money from the barbecue will go back into the community to help students.

“We give out scholarships in the local area— Liberal, Lamar, Jasper, Golden City,” says Jerod Gardner.

Gardner says this is the biggest fundraiser they have each year. In just one day they cook about 13 hundred meals for people.
