The Weekend

The Books and Badgers event for kids takes place at the City Library this morning at 10:30am with Badger Athletes reading kite stories, then helping their young listeners build and fly kites outside.

The Kempner VFD Annual Fundraiser BBQ and Auction kicks off at 4:30pm this afternoon with the “good eats” coming off the grill and out of the kitchen. Those wanting $5 food boxes can even show up as early as noon, with box sales cut off at 5. Regular guests for the evening will enjoy a super meal for just $10 for the BBQ plate or $5 for a BBQ Sandwich and chips. Either way it’s money well spent.

After that there’s the auction, kicking off at 5:30pm with some great bargains that have been donated to the cause. The cause, in general, is an almost self-supporting community effort in providing active fire protection and service to the Kempner area. This year, they’re raising money to help fund a selfcontained breathing apparatus fill station. There are a handful of garage sales in our list on page 2 of the Radiogram – weather permitting.
