Carrying on a 60-year tradition, the Cutchogue Fire Department held its annual chicken barbecue Saturday evening, raising funds to support the department and all its good work.

This year 3,448 half-chickens were served to hungry crowds, many enjoying their meals under an enormous tent set up on the fire department grounds.
