The Junior Historians of Hutchinson Junior High hosted their annual Jog-A-Thon Saturday morning. It is a fundraising event that helps raise money for local non-profit organizations. Hospice of Lubbock will be receiving part of the proceeds. Dozens of kids turned out for the event.
You are invited to the South Plains Food Bank's 2002 Hunger Banquet. On the menu is a gourmet meal, a bowl of soup, or just beans and rice. But, do not plan on choosing that gourmet meal because there is a random selection to decide who gets served which meal. The point of the dinner is to make you think about what is would be like not to have enough to eat. The event is called Feast or Famine and it is a kickoff to Texas Tech's annual canned food collection campaign. It is this Sunday at 6 p.m. in the University Center Ballroom. Admission is free but donations to the South Plains Food Bank are welcome.
