The rain – and forecast for more – put a damper on Canoe Market Days last Saturday. Anticipating a low turnout, all but one vendor cancelled. However, organizers had taken orders for smoked chicken plates – almost 80 plates, in fact – and that part of the day went on without a hitch. Shown, taking a break are Kevin McKinley, front left, and his dad, O’Neal McKinley, front right, Susan and David Amos, back. Kevin said Susan and David (who grilled the chicken) saved the day.
