The 70th Anniversary of the Tolar Train Explosion is Nov 30, 2014. Randy Dunson has worked hard on getting a Historical Marker placed on Hwy 60/84 just west of the Pink Pony.

It’s time for the Harvest Carnival that the National Honor Society and Baptist Church sponsor each year. This is great fun for the kids and a wonderful alternative to the traditional “Halloween things”. Please bring lots of candy for the carnival to the Baptist Church office throughout the month of October. Admission for the carnival is a canned good per person. All the canned goods collected are used in the Holiday Baskets for those in need. (Also begin thinking about Operation Christmas Child!)
