Come Help For Halloween!

If you are near Council Bluffs, and want to help kids for Halloween…

The Lakin Human Services Campus (where the Red Cross is) is holding a Trunk or Treat on Monday, October 27, 4:30 – 6:30 pm, for the various families served by the Micah House, Salvation Army, etc.  They will accept any and all vehicles, decorated, with a folks to be there to give out candy (and you supply the candy).

This will be a LOT of fun!  Come on out!

If you are able to be there, contact Clarissa Newman at the Lakin Campus to RSVP.

Flag Carriers Wanted

Iowa Western has sent a request for scouts (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers) to assist with carrying a 30’x50′ American flag onto the field prior to their Sept 6 football game at the Lewis Central football field.  The game is at 6 pm.  Scouts should be in uniform.  The game is military appreciation night, and IWCC would like to have scouts, rather than the military (since they are being honored).


Interested units should contact me:  Jason Cruse
