Dollars for Scholars to hold pork barbecue

Hannibal Dollars for Scholars is hosting a pulled pork barbecue on Sunday, April 7 at the Hannibal American Legion on Rochester Street in Hannibal.

The barbecue will run from noon until 3:30 p.m. or until sold out.

The dinner includes pulled pork with a kaiser roll, cole slaw, salt potatoes, baked beans and dessert.

Take-out dinners will be available. Pre-sale tickets are available by visiting the chapter web site at hannibal.dollarsforscholars.org and email one of the chapter contacts, or call 564-5630.

All proceeds from the dinner will be used to provide scholarships to graduating seniors from Hannibal High School.

In 2012, the chapter provided 13 scholarships of $500 each to Hannibal students.

Hannibal Dollars for Scholars is a chapter of the national organization Dollars for Scholars.
