Annual Flush Picnic to move to drive thru setting Sunday, Aug. 9


An annual chicken feed in Pottawatomie County will look a little different this year amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

St. Joseph’s Catholic Church has opted to shift its annual chicken dinner fundraiser to a drive-thru event. The picnic typically draws thousands to Flush for the food, festivities, and fun. This year’s event will take place Sunday, August 9, from 4 to 7 p.m.

Those looking to get a meal can either order online at in advance until Saturday. They will also be taking on-site orders. Dinner costs $10, but they’ll be taking additional donations as well.

Organizers have prepared a plan to process vehicles through the circuit efficiently.

All volunteers will be following local COVID-19 guidelines including physical distancing, temperature checks and wearing masks and gloves when required by regulations.
