About 3-thousand pounds of chicken will be prepared over open fire along with dutch oven style potatoes as the Wilson Fire Department readies for their annual fundraiser.  It’s one that Fire Captain Stephen Moomey says the community has enjoyed over 45 years already.  Consequently, Moomey urges community members to arrive early and bring chairs to set up in the shady grove at the corner of Wyoming highways 22 and 390.  Each year Moomey says money raised by the chicken fry is used to purchase essential fire fighting equipment or training.  This year, he says the focus will be on paramedic training for members and there was bus extrication training for fire/EMS personnel recently.  Moomey quickly adds that the department is always buying new equipment, and anything that is related to fire departments is always very expensive. The chicken fry begins serving at noon Sunday and continues until the chicken is gone – usually around 4:00 pm.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer. It’s a […]
