Big turnout at Back to School Bash.
 Friday’s Drive Through for Health and Safety Back to School Bash was a big deal. As in organizers saying they had to begin giving out supplies before the advertised 5 pm start time because traffic was stretching onto the bypass. It was a true community effort. All three public safety organizations as well other community groups assisted. Bike helmets, backpacks, cases of water were among some of the items given away. There were also numerous donations. The event was sponsored by Heartland EMS, Lindsey Dykes State Farm, Communities in Schools/Family Connection, and the Region 5 Regional Trauma and Advisory Committee.
