Rutledge Fall Celebration To Be Held Saturday

The sixth annual Rutledge Fall Celebration will be held Saturday, September 21, in Rutledge Park.

The celebration will start at 10:30 a.m. with a back seat driver's contest. At noon the free music will start and all area candidates are invited to make a short speech. The kids' pedal tractor pull will begin at 1:00 p.m., followed by miscellaneous kids and adult games. Around 2:00 p.m. the great game of Bingo will start, and their version of Cow Chip Bingo. The drawing for raffle prizes will go on all day with the grand prize of $50 to be given away around 5:00 p.m.

Food will be available beginning at 11:00 a.m. and includes hamburgers, polish sausage and kraut and homemade pie and cake.

Some of the entertainment scheduled for the afternoon includes Naomi Chandler, Jackie Kline, Abby Clatt, Brooke Mullinix, and Gary Bradley. If you would like to perform, please come and join in.

Albert Winn will have his train there giving free rides to all who want them and David Jackson will have his basketball game for the kids to play for free.

Bring your lawn chairs and spend the afternoon in the park.

The Rutledge School reunion will be Sunday, September 22 and a lot of the former students and teachers make this a two-day event, so attend and join the fun.
