The Lawrence Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie #309 held its third annual Fire in the Hole Barbecue Competition from June 1 to June 2. The recipients of this year’s fundraising were the Douglas County Toys for Tots and the Lawrence Police Department’s Blue Santa program, a charity that helps needy families at Christmas with food and presents. The competition raised $7,000 this year and was split between the two charities.
