Date nears for local rib sale

 Scrumptious! Delicious! Succulent! Mouth-Watering! These were some of the words that were used to describe the barbecued baby rack ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community last April. Before cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Herb Silverman says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret that’s as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. You’ll need to eat the Rotary’s baby back ribs to experience the great taste.
Rotary is the world’s oldest service organization and it does great things both locally and internationally. The Ribathon is a major fundraiser that allows the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program as well as projects that provide clean water or fight polio in impoverished communities around the world.
Oct. 15 is the date of the next baby back rib sale. Look for the tent in the parking lot at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and S.W. 99th Street starting at 10 a.m. A full rack of baby back ribs costs only $15 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30. The cost is $18 for racks that are not prepaid or that are picked up after 12:30. The Rotary Club will stay under the tent until all of the ribs have been sold.
Pre-paid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. You can also buy tickets at several locations along State Route 200 including the Bank of the Ozarks, M&S Bank, Alarion Bank, TD Bank and the law office of W.E. Bishop Jr. For more information, call Ray Sargent at 352-857-9099.
