This Thursday is Patriots Day and the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW Post 1281 will host the annual 9-11 Walk again at Father Padilla Park. There will be a special Color Guard walk and ceremony at 6pm and walkers will continue until 8pm. The ladies will have water and American flags for the walkers and hope that everyone will come out to honor our first responders and military on this solemn day.
Friday offers two ways to fill your bellies without messing up your kitchens. The Herington Civic Club will host a Pancake Feed at the Community Building from 5-6:30pm with the proceeds to be shared with the Herington High School. Or if a Fish Fry is more to your liking, head on over to the Herington Senior Center for music with Randy Brown. The fish fry is from 5-7pm and music will go from 5-8pm.
If you just can’t get enough fish, be sure and put Saturday the 20th on your calendars when the American Legion Riders will be hosting a Fish Fry at the American Legion Building at Herington Lake. They’ll start serving at 5pm and will serve until they run out of fish.
Also on the 20th will be the Herington Co-Ed Softball Benefit Tournament at the Herington Ball Fields, the Recycled Robots Art Competition at Prairie Chic, and the POW/MIA Remembrance and Potluck at the VFW Hall.
