Full slate of weekend activities is coming

By Chuck Samples/KVOE News

It's another busy weekend across the KVOE listening area.

Things start Friday evening with the 40th annual Mexican Supper benefiting Sacred Heart School. The meal will be served from 4:30 to 7:30 pm.

Saturday’s schedule is busy, especially from morning into early afternoon. The first-ever Nitty Gritty Tie Dye Run is happening at 9 am at Camp Alexander to benefit the camp, Emporia Child Care and Big Brothers Big Sisters.

KVOE will broadcast live from the Tie Dye Run and also from Hetlinger's Apple Fest, which takes place from 10 am to 2 pm. Director Trudy Hutchinson says a lot will be taking place.

Also, the Humane Society has its annual doghouse build at the Fairgrounds Anderson Building starting at 9 am. Seven houses are being built with three already donated.

Safe Kids Emporia has its final child seat safety check lane of the year from 10 am to 1 pm at Staples.

The Big Four reunion picnic will be from 11 am to 2 pm at Peter Pan Park. Organizer Bill Hedges says it's an event rooted in Emporia's railroad history.

Sunday's activity list is busy as well. Newman Regional Health is having an open house for its MRI unit from 1 to 3 pm, according to spokesperson Beth Hammond.

Also at 1 pm, the tractor demonstration originally slated to take place during the Lyon County Fair will start at the Historic Richard Howe Farmstead, 315 East Logan. That goes until 4 pm and was rescheduled because of wet weather.

At 2 pm, Sundays on the Porch continues at Red Rocks with a look at Emporia's most notorious bank robberies. The discussion is free and open to the public.
