Lions Club Donates To Log A Load

Lion Tim Kessler, Clint Horn, and Patsy Thornton
The Warren Lions Club voted to donate $100.00 to the Bradley County Log A Load effort, during the club's meeting September 14, 2016.  The program for the meeting was presented by Patsy Thornton and Clint Horn, Co-Chairs of the Bradley County Log A Load committee.  Mrs. Thornton works for Potlatch Corp. and Mr. Horn for Timber Logistics.

The Log A Load program in Arkansas raises funds for Arkansas Children's Hospital.  This is the 23rd year for a fund raising event in Bradley County.  According to Mr. Horn, the county usually raises in excess of $50,000.00 per year.  Bradley County has conducted one of the most successful Log A Load programs in Arkansas over the years.

In addition to Mrs. Thornton and Mr. Horn, Danny Thomas of the New Edinburg community and Nancy Loomis with Clearwater are assisting with this year's event.  Tickets are available and may be purchased at the door Saturday, September 24th beginning at 6:00 P.M. at Immanuel Baptist Church located on West Pine Street in Warren.  There will be silent and public auctions to raise money and logs will be auctioned off.  It is an enjoyable event and supports a great cause. Everyone is invited to attend!
