McLouth Happenings

March 8, 2011

Remember to set your clocks forward one hour before going to bed Saturday night. Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 13.

• A benefit poker run for Trevor Roberts will start with registration at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 7 at the McLouth Schools cafeteria.

Registration will last until 11:30 a.m. when the poker run route will go from McLouth to Nortonville, Meriden, Rees Fruit Farm and Perry before returning to McLouth High School.

A biscuits and gravy breakfast will be served from 9-11:30 a.m.

Cost is $20 for each rider and $10 for each passenger. Cost includes a poker hand, breakfast and one drawing ticket. Additional tickets for the drawing on door prizes are $5 each. The high hand will win $100 and low hand wins $20.

All other proceeds will be donated to help with medical expenses of Trevor Roberts. The MHS senior broke his leg during a football game this past fall and had to have a portion of his leg amputated because of the injury.

The event is sponsored by Tonganoxie American Legion Post 41 Riders. For more information, contact John Tillisch at (785) 438-7958 or
