The Chillin’ and Grillin’ BBQ Cook Off will be this Saturday, September 10, 2016, from 10 AM to 3 PM at the Jesse Turner – Fontana Park’s Sports Pavilion located at 15556 Summit Avenue in Fontana.

It is a partnership between the Concerned Citizens for the Development of North Fontana, the Fontana Police Officers Association and the City of Fontana.

This is all about “UNITY in CommUNITY” – continuing to develop trust and communications with the police and the community.

We’re building trust-based personal-relationships with events as simple and as Biblical as “breaking bread” together to help to remove barriers and misunderstanding.

Communication: Community safety is improved when the people better understand how and why first responders do what they do.

The Harvard Business Review recently reported that preparing and sharing a casual meal helps build comradery. We see the Barbecue Competition as building comradery. For us that means trust, communication and collaboration.

At the event you can sample award winning barbecue. There will also be vendors, games and activities for kids, first responder emergency vehicles.

You and your kids can climb on the SWAT Truck, see the police helicopter plus historic police and fire vehicles.

There will be current police and fire vehicles, a beam from the World Trade Center, public safety demonstrations and live entertainment.

All paid attendees will receive a raffle ticket. One raffle prize is a flat screen TV and the other is a barbecue/smoker. The cost is $10 per person, children under five are free.

The Fontana Chamber of Commerce, Fontana Rotary Club, Fontana Women’s Club and Fontana Exchange Club are all supporters of this community event.
