LONGMEADOW – Succulent hamburgers and hot dogs, lots of fun for the kids, carnival games, and many friends greeted the attendees at Lubavitcher Yeshiva Academy (LYA) during their Sizzlin’ Summer Barbecue on July 15. A crowd of more than 230 community members attended the ninth annual community family event. The fun began with an inflatable obstacle course and moon bounce, partially sponsored by Ascher Zimmerman Funeral Home and Lou Silver. Youngsters and adults alike enjoyed a summer carnival with booths, such as bean bag toss, hair braiding, and face painting. A buffet style barbecue was served. Special thanks go to Ron Manchester, who grilled over 330 hamburgers and hot dogs.
