She said the picnic has never been rained ouL "We have been rained on but never rained out" Catholic students from Dickson, Humphreys and other neighboring counties attend grades 1-8 at St. Patrick's.

St. Patrick's has operated a parochial school since 1856." "The barbecue raises 60 to 70 of the school's operating budget," said Ney. Documentation on last year's barbecue was submitted to Guinness which resulted in the world's biggest recognition. Ney said, "It takes 26 hours to cook the pork shoulder. We cook it over hickory coals and not flame, so it cooks very slowly.
