The Camp Pioneer annual Ox Roast is scheduled for 4 to 7 p.m. July 26 at Camp Pioneer. Twelve hundred pounds of choice rounds of beef will be placed in the wood-heated deep pit on the night of July 25 to slow cook until it is sliced just prior to serving.
The Ox Roast meal will consist of deep-pit roasted beef sandwiches, coleslaw, baked beans, dessert and drinks (drinks not included with drive through service).
Tickets for the annual Camp Pioneer Benefit Ox Roast are on sale at the WVU Extension Service at 32 Randolph Ave., Suite 102 Elkins; Southern States, Elkins; Campbell's Market, Beverly; and the Randolph County Senior Center in Elkins.
The Ox Roast is a benefit fundraiser for Camp Pioneer that serves as an annual homecoming for 4-H'ers, 4-H parents, 4-H Leaders, West Virginia Community Educational Outreach members (our extension homemakers) and supporters who helped build and still contribute to Camp Pioneer.
Camp Pioneer is a facility that all Randolph County can be proud to show friends and relatives. Several 4-H Clubs will have game booths and other activities, plus 4-H project exhibits will be on display.
Those attending the Ox Roast are requested to park in the lower parking lot at the horse ring. There will be a handicapped accessible bus and a hayride to shuttle everyone to and from the dining hall. No automobiles will be permitted to park near the dining hall area due to the "drive thru" food service, the shuttle buses, and disabled and elderly drop-off and pick-up station.
