Proceeds will go to Emma Simpson’s upcoming journey to Russia where she will receive potentially life-saving multiple sclerosis stem cell treatment.

The Finley Rotary Club provided a merry-go-round and the Berrigan Lions Club set up a jumping castle.
There was also a fantastic raffle that comprised a trailer of gardening equipment, which will be drawn at the trivia night on August 30.
