Sound Rivers Executive Director Heather Deck and Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper Katey Zimmerman teamed up with longtime Sound Rivers supporter Jim Kellenberger for a pig pickin’ hosted by River City Construction at Clarks Neck Fire Station in Washington.

River City purchased the “Pig Pickin’ for 50” put on by Jim during the 2023 Oyster Roast auction. On Thursday, Heather, Katey and volunteers Christina Marshen and Dawn Dolson headed down to assist with the event, serving up eastern North Carolina vinegar-based barbecue with sides.

The pig was purchased from Rainbow Meadows Farms in Snow Hill, meaning local, pasture-raised (non-factory farmed) meat.

Many thanks to Jim for cooking up some great barbecue, our volunteers for serving and up and River City Construction for supporting Sound Rivers!
