Hey, friends. A newly established school needs our help. Royal Christian Academy in Boyd opened Oct. 5 and needs books and other supplies. This Saturday (Nov. 7) they are hosting a fundraiser – Barrels for Books – to raise money to purchase books, among other things.
This is a barrel racing event at Keeter Arena, also known as Bob Ruffin arena, on Keeter Highway (County Road 2048). A barrel racing exhibition is 11 a.m. to 1:45 p.m., and anyone who wants to ride is welcome. Cost is $4 per exhibition.
At 2 p.m. a 5-division competitive barrel race begins, and everyone has a chance to win money.
There will also be a silent auction and concession stand. Call Amy Proudfoot at (940) 389-2441 for information.
The school is for preschoolers (age 3) through eighth graders, and it is not affiliated with any specific church or denomination.
