BEVERLY — The Randolph County Parks & Recreation Board and Camp Pioneer presents its 56th annual Ox Roast on Thursday, July 25 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Camp Pioneer in Beverly.

The Ox Roast is a benefit fundraiser for Camp Pioneer that serves as an annual homecoming for 4-Hers, parents, leaders and supporters who helped build and still contribute to Camp Pioneer. Camp Pioneer is a facility that all Randolph County can be proud to show friends and relatives. The Ox Roast is also where Randolph County 4-Hers exhibit their completed 4-H projects.

The Ox Roast meal consists of deep-pit roasted beef sandwiches, cole slaw, baked beans, dessert and drinks (drinks not included with drive thru service).

Tickets are available at $12 for the two-sandwich meal; one-sandwich meal for $8. Tickets can be purchased at the WVU Extension Office, Southern States, Elkins Senior Center, Bobbie’s, and Liggett’s Supply.

Persons attending the event may choose to “drive thru” or come inside to sit down with friends in the Dining & Assembly Halls. To park, cars will be directed to enter through the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church parking lot on Mt. Vernon Road. Handicap parking is available. No automobiles will be permitted to park near the dining hall area due to the “drive thru” food service. Your cooperation on parking will be appreciated.

Treat your family to a very enjoyable, relaxing evening at Camp Pioneer.

Programs and activities offered by the West Virginia University Extension Service are available to all persons without regard to race, color, sex, disability, religion, age, veteran status, political beliefs, sexual orientation, national origin, and marital or family status.
