Ohio County Rescue Service seventh annual Chicken Barbecue Saturday, Sept. 8 at the Rising Sun City Building. Complete meal, $1.25. Pies are 15 cents. Other highlights will be musical selections by Rising Sun High School Band and Patriot High school Band, and a public auction at 7 p.m.

The Rising Sun Canning Corporation was off to a bad start for the season, Friday morning when a tractor-trailer truck carrying the tomatoes upset at the North edge of Rising Sun near the home of Richard Gannaway, the former Will Bodey farm.

The United Church of Christ lawn fete was once again a success. This is one traditional event that never loses its aura of excitement. Members say that at the first lawn fete each family made a freezer of ice cream and donated it for the affair. Later, ice cream was made in large containers and frozen by tractor power. Now the ice cream is made several days ahead and stored in the food locker.

Jerry Lamkin will be teaching commercial subjects at Tech High School in Indianapolis this fall.

A stray pigeon of special breed was seen in front of the Ohio County Newspaper Office last week. A call to Steve McClure, a little bird seed, and a large net was all that was needed to capture this runaway fowl.

Births: to Mr. and Mrs. James Johnson, a daughter Aug. 22; to Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Gray, a daughter Aug. 24 named Terry Lynn; to Mr. and Mrs. Larry Dugle, a daughter, Kathy Jo Aug. 26.

 Hot, tired, thirsty? Why not stop at the Dairy Queen for a talk cool, refreshing drink of Pepsi, Coke, root beer, orange, grape, or lemon. Prices are 10 cents, 15 cents, 20 cents, and 25 cents. All drinks chilled with crushed ice.
