The Fall Festival, held at Okaw Valley Park on Saturday, sponsored by the Methodist Women’s Organization was a great event. Hats off and thank you to them and the New Athens Volunteer Fireman who in conjunction with the event held a Kickball Tournament.
It was great to see the many community organizations involved and a spirit of cooperation. The VFW was selling 50-50 tickets with the proceeds going to the New Athens Nursing Home.
Our community has many struggles and challenges; however, it also has some great bright spots. The good-hearted residents are one of them.
