Noel Bryan, Charlie Ridoutt, and Raymond Umstead; (in truck) Horace Barrow and Archie Castleberry.

Barbecue, May, 1984. Pictured at a Bay Leaf Fire Department's annual "Chicken Cook" are, left to right, R. L. Harris, Lonnie Dean, Don Heres, David Rogers, Alton Ledford, Ersell Liles, and Mark Peterson. The popular event was discontinued at the end of the decade due to dripping fat. When the Falls Lake watershed was created, environmental restrictions prohibited the free release of grease, and the coast of containment was greater than the revenue generated by the fundraisers.
