Congratulations to August Citizens of the Month Ashlyn Mitchell and Jacob Wright who kicked off that program for this school year. Sabrina Wright and Jeff Martin accompanied the students to the meeting. Town and County Bank and Century Bank are supplying $50 savings bonds for our students again this year.
We have been invited to participate in the Fall Farm Classic & Demolition Derby Sept. 24 at the fairgrounds. We will be selling funnel cakes, bottled water and iced tea from 4-10 p.m. on that day. Proceeds will go to worthy programs we support.
After that event, our booth will be moved to the football field where we will partner with Project Graduation helping them raise money at the last three home games of the season.
Member Denise Reese has been faithful in watering the flowers we planted at the park earlier this year. If you’re at the park, stop by and check them out!

We now have a variety of Really Big Coloring Books at Ozark Family Vision Center. These big books are $4 each and would make great birthday or Christmas gifts. All proceeds from the books will go toward our Christmas For Kids project.
