There will be a benefit pie auction for the Neal family; I will let you know the set date as soon as it is set. The Neal family, who lived down Watson Road in Alread, lost their house and all of their belongings in a fire in December.

Saturday, March 3, ACCDA is having a clean-up day at the Alread school from about 8 to 10 a.m. and all help is very appreciated.

The meal will be served from 5 to 7 p.m. Adults and Children 12 and above: $8, Couples: $15, Children 3-11: $5, Children 2 and under: free. There is a family discount available for $25.

Saturday, March 31: The Alread Community Easter Egg Hunt will be at the Alread F.U.N. Park from about 11 to 12:30 p.m. This is a free event for children in the area that we look forward to every year and we hope to see you there.

Every week there is the exercise program at the Alread EH Club. The low-impact strengthening classes are always free and meet every MWF from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Sheila McGrath would like to keep doing the quilting circle every Thursday (from about 9 to 1) but needs at least one more person. If you are interested, please give her a call: 501-745-2389. If you would like to use the EH Club building for a family event, then Sheila is also the person that you want to call about that.
