Walk-a-thon planned for Mo. victims

Other fund-raisers include yard sale

The Mount Airy Flood Relief Committee, which has raised $6,388 for the residents of Alexandria, Mo., has planned a series of fund-raisers, including a walk-a-thon, yard sale and a dance.

A walk-a-thon is scheduled for Sept. 19. The walk will begin at the train station off Main Street. A route has not been determined. A yard sale is scheduled for Oct. 17 along Main Street.

The town also is looking for volunteers to take part in a builders convoy.

Volunteers will visit the Missouri town, located at the confluence of the Des Moines and Mississippi rivers, to help residents rebuild homes and businesses in October.

A dance is scheduled for Feb. 4 at the Mount Airy Legion Post 191. To date, the post has donated $690 to Alexandria flood victims.

Mount Airy adopted the town earlier this month. Officials hope to raise $100,000.
