BBQ teams started pulling into the square on Friday, Sept. 16, 2016, and in spite of a little rain, spirits weren’t dampened by Friday evening for the Breakaway Band’s performance. Beautiful weather on the 17th helped make the contests, games and BBQ cookoff a day to remember. Thanks to all of our Chamber Board & members who pitched in a helping hand, the City of Butler, and our major sponsors: Gordon Brown Insurance, Bates County Veterinary Clinic, Midwest Lumber and Spirit Commercial Auto Group!
