Youth Activities: Punt, Pass and Kick and the Soccer Challenge are fast approaching. Tentatively it is scheduled to coincide with Corn Fest on August 26th at Citizen’s Field. Our hope is to get many more youth to participate in the events. Many volunteers will be needed to help out as well as someone the head up the event.
Dakotah Johnson from the Somerset Boy Scout Troop was awarded $100.00 from our council to help in the cost of construction of a shed for Grace Place.
Bingo: KC Bingo is just around the corner. We are always looking for help with this our biggest fund raiser. September 10, 2017 will be the first night for the upcoming season. The jackpot carry over from the spring is quite large so extra help will be needed to assist with the bar and help on the floor. Family Bingo was held during Fun Fest this year on Friday and Saturday evenings. The turn out was low to say the least. Any suggestions on how to make this better would be greatly appreciated.
Food Drive: Ed Zimmerman can always use help on the 2nd Monday of each month, 11:30 a.m. at Wal-Mart (southwest end of the building) to help load food and deliver it to the food shelf.
