By Beth Milligan | May 16, 2020

Northwestern Michigan College (NMC) will hold its annual Barbecue in 2020 as a “Virtual Barbecue” with a full slate of activities and programs usually offered at the on-campus event available online May 15-30.

Visitors to the Virtual Barbecue site will find numerous activities, including:

> Puzzles and activities to download
> The Dennos Museum’s first-ever virtual gallery show
> Performances from NMC music ensembles
> Special barbecue recipes 
> Opportunities to show NMC pride via social media and email

The NMC Barbecue, started in 1956 by Oleson's Food Stores founders Gerald and Frances Oleson, has raised more than $1.5 million over the years, supporting nearly every program at the college and generations of students. Virtual visitors will have the opportunity to make an online donation this year, with funds raised supporting student needs, which have increased due to the pandemic and subsequent economic fallout.
