DOBSON — Members of the Machining Club at Surry Community College worked together on a Port-A-Pit BBQ Chicken fundraiser, which enabled the students to donate $400 to the Children’s Center located in Dobson.
The fundraiser took place on Oct. 8, but club members worked hard during the weeks leading up to the lunch by selling tickets to students, staff, faculty and friends. They sold a total of 600 plates according to Machining Club Faculty Advisor Corey Easter, who is the lead instructor of the Computer-Integrated Machining program. Kola-T-Katering of Statesville cooked the chicken.
This is the third time the Machining Club has donated to the Children’s Center. Easter said, “We like to be good neighbors and help out the community.” Last May, the club had a similar Port-A-Pit BBQ Chicken fundraiser, and donated $400 to the Children’s Center as well.
SCC offers a degree, diploma and certificate in Computer-Integrated Machining. Registration for spring classes for new students takes place Nov. 9 through Dec. 18. For more information, go to www.surry.edu. To following the Machining program, go to https://www.facebook.com/surrymachining.
