During the second weekend of each month from March through November (except August, when it's too hot), look for a Knights of Columbus crew at the corner of Big Bend Boulevard and Manchester Road. They'll be serving up delicious barbecue for passersby and drive-up customers. The proceeds benefit St. Vincent de Paul, Special Olympics and Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital.
September's barbecue will raise money for Backstoppers. The Knights of Columbus started raising money for the organization when Maplewood firefighter Ryan Hummert was killed in the line of duty in 2008. On that first weekend in 2008, more than $7,000 was raised in two days.
