This afternoon was yet another successful fundraiser for Sheriff John Burns. Droves of people flocked the Italian American Club in the city of Watertown to wish John well and eat some of the best smoked chicken we’ve ever had.
George from Smokey’s was on site smoking chickens and various other items that were snatched up as quickly as he could get them off the rack. The food was spectacular and the crowd was “charged up and ready to go” for Sheriff Burns.
One highlight of today’s event was the political cross over that this event exuded. Although these events are usually heavily attended by people of the same political party we were impressed by the who’s who of non-dems that attended. We had high ranking Republicans like St Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells attending as well as Town and Village elected officials from across the tri county area.
We want to do a special thank you to the Italian American club for hosting this event. It was a great day and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. We also want to thank everyone that took time out of their weekend to attend…it was much appreciated!
