Priced at $9, these popular dinners prepared by The Old Barn Out Back include barbecue chicken quarters, pulled pork, cheddar mashed potatoes, green beans, and a dinner roll. The Ada Music Booster BBQ is a long-standing Ada tradition because so many find it to be an easy way for families to enjoy a quick and convenient dinner before the first home football game of the season. We encourage you to buy your tickets early. Also available at pick-up while supplies last, the Music Boosters will be selling The Old Barn Out Back cinnamon rolls, 6 for $5, and slices of pie for $2 each.

ARE YOU ENROLLED IN KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS?
Kroger Community Rewards is a program that rewards the Ada Music Boosters for purchases that registrants make at Kroger using their Kroger Plus Card! Registrants already know that by shopping at Kroger and using their Kroger Plus card, Kroger makes quarterly payments to the Ada Music Boosters. Registrations do expire in the spring, so it is important to check your receipt to see if your purchases are still going to help the Music Boosters. Thank you to everyone that has participated in this program! If your registration has expired, please re-enroll following the instructions posted on our Kroger re-enrollment page. Instructions for first-time enrollments are also provided.
