Hello everyone. Not only the Easter Bunny, but Kirksville is hopping as well.
Over the next few months, there are lots of events in Kirkville. So mark your calendar.
The Saint Patrick’s Day dance will be this Saturday from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Kirksville Community Center.
This is a benefit event for the Kirksville Fire Department. Admission is $5. Ages 5 and under are free.
There will be chili and hot dogs for sale. All proceeds will go to the fire department. This will help in support in buying needed equipment. Fire apparel is essential for all firefighters.
I know, we as a community, would want our firefighters safe. So please support our own by your donations.
March 23 will be the annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Carpenters. They are located on the corner of Hwy. 595/1295.
The egg hunt is sponsored by the members of Full Gospel Tabernacle. All children of the community are welcome. It will be conducted immediately after the morning church service.
The Full Gospel Tabernacle youth group will be having movie night at the church on March 30 at 7 p.m. They will be showing “The Passion of the Christ.” Everyone is invited.
Easter Sunday is March 31. The ladies will be in their hats, children in their frilly Easter dresses and boys in their little suits. The men will look sharp as well.
Even though there is fun in dress-up, the day is a day of respect. It is a great day of honoring Christ in his sacrifice for our salvation. Attend your church service for a special day.
I know many of the churches are planning special events, plays and other programs to honor that day.
As I said, Kirksville is hopping. Kirksville Community Center will be having several upcoming events.
On Saturday, April 20, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the community center will be sponsoring a car, motorcycle, tractor show and swap meet.
Hey, it sounds like fun. Get your mode of transportation ready for the “Best of the Show.”
If you would like more details, call Mike Estes 328-4430 or Don Battles 358-3905.
On May 19 at the center, the Craft and Vendor Fair will be conducted. This is an annual event. It will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. So, you have plenty of time to start getting ready with your presentation of goods.
