New Year Pilarski Pig Picking

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIf this is your first year as a Knight, you may not know about Jerry Pilarski’s  annual pig picking.  He has been hosting this family event (for all ages and generations) for nearly 50 years as a way to give back to his family and friends.  He is assisted and joined by other local families to make this annual event possible.

It is on New Years Day starting at 2:30 pm and meal at 3:30 pm. We are doing it in the country at a 4H Barn just off Orange Grove Rd, Hillsborough.  You are invited and are encouraged to bring along the kids.  They will keep busy exploring the 4H barn and are sure to make new friends.

Jerry Pilarski is cooking the shoulders for our enjoyment.  Everyone is asked to bring a family favorite covered side dish or dessert.  There is always the traditional corn bread, black-eyed peas, and greens.  You are encouraged to show off your family favorite or ethnic dish.

The 4H Barn has plenty of seating and lots of room for you to walk around to meet and greet others.  It is a great place for kids or grandchildren.  There is a large open area that looks out over Orange County and Dairyland Road.  Kids love to stroll around and have fun with other kids.  Attire is rustic.  Enjoy you day.  Wear jeans and a casual shirt.  Relax!

The event will be behind the Cane Creek Church Activity Center, 6716 Orange Grove Rd., Hillsborough (it’s just north of the Orange Grove Volunteer Fire Department).  View Map
