Bell ringers needed
It’s time for the annual Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign. Volunteers will be ringing bells on December 1, 8, and 15 in Mount Vernon and Poseyville. The group still need lots of bell ringers. This is a great community service project, or just a great way to get together
with some friends and make a difference in Posey County. All funds collected are used directly to help local families. Call Beth Russell at 812-838-6875 to reserve your time to ring a bell.

Sponsors sought for singers
If you enjoyed last spring’s performance of “Calling All Dawns,” you will have an opportunity to hear it again, twelve times, on Saturday, Nov. 10 in the choir room at Mount Vernon Senior High School.
The Mount Vernon Senior High School Vocal Music Dept. will host a Sing-A-Thon in support of its upcoming trip to New York City’s Avery Fisher Hall and their performance of “Calling All Dawns.”
Vocal Music director Dana Taylor notes, “we are thrilled at the opportunity to sing “Calling All Dawns” in New York but knew that we would need to create opportunities for students to raise funds to pay for the trip. The sing-a-thon was an easy choice and will show the community how dedicated the students are to making the trip possible”.
Student participants will be seeking sponsors for each hour they sing. Individuals interested in sponsoring students or making a donation should contact the school at 812-833-5932.
