Moran Firefighter Barbecue

Firefighters investigate the remains of a home near Moran in March 2006. Moran volunteer firefighters will host their annual annual benefit barbecue on Sunday.

Members of the Moran Volunteer Firefighter’s Association will be dishing up barbecued ribs and chicken plus corn on the cob this Sunday for their biggest fundraiser of the year.

The 38th Annual Benefit BBQ will be held from noon to 3 p.m. at the Hatchet Resort, 8 miles north of Moran. In addition to the food, which can be taken to go or enjoyed on the spot, there will be beer, live music, a raffle and a live auction. And in honor of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the festivities will be paused for a moment of silence to remember the firefighters who lost their lives that day.

The live auction will start at 1 p.m. Lots include a Signal Mountain Lodge room and dining package, a Jenny Lake Lodge package, an overnight stay at Jackson Lake Lodge, a Grand Teton Lodge Company Mural Room Dining package, a Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis certificate, and artwork by local and regional artists.

Money raised at the barbecue is used to cover all station costs outside of county funding, including apparatus upgrades, suppression equipment, community activities and Fire/EMS training events.

The dozen volunteer members of the Moran Volunteer Firefighter’s Association include park rangers, Teton Interagency Fire personnel and members of the local workforce, a press release said.

With the COVID-19 crisis and the increasing number of visitors to Grand Teton National Park, the Moran station is seeing record call volume this year.

The barbecue costs $14 for adults and $6 for children under the age of 12. Kids younger than 6 can eat for free.
