Fundraiser planned for young singer

Kayla Mae Lauzon, the young girl who’s been thrilling district audiences with her terrific singing voice, will be off to Nashville to compete at a talent symposium Aug. 24.
To help her along the way, Barwick has planned a fundraiser smorgasboard, “A Night at the Bashville Opry,” this Saturday (July 20) starting at 6 p.m. in the Barwick Hall.
Check the posters, they are everywhere!
Tickets are available throughout the district, or by calling Ruth at 487-2605 or 487-9914. Cost is $15 for adults, $8 for children aged seven-12, and free for those six and under.

Gravel roads can be hazardous, especially after grading.
Last week, someone lost control of their car on loose gravel after the grader worked the road near here. Fortunately, no serious injury occurred other than a cut on the woman’s arm.
A wrecker pulled the car from the ditch.
