Along Life’s Highways and Byways by jere el

As you travel along Life’s Highways and Byways there is one road Highway 154 that will lead you to the bustling little berg of Perry, where there is always something of interest going on. Perry is located only eight miles from Mark Twain Lake and Clarence Cannon Dam. So if you are looking for something to do this coming weekend take a little drive on August 25 and 26 to the Perry Volunteer Fire Department 2-day Coed Softball Tournament. The Perry volunteer firefighters are raising money for their local department to get better equipment so they can better serve their community. If you have any questions call Corey Fry at 573-248-7681 and sign up or come visit and support this worthy cause. After the fascinating car show this past weekend things tend to slow down for the Perry Area Chamber, but you never can tell what new event will be announced soon with this energetic group. There were some 130 entries at the show this year and what great autos showed up for display with the drive to the lake following at 7 p.m.. What a show, hope you all got to come, there was a great crowd and good homemade ice cream. Make plans to attend next year...mark you calendars now for the third weekend in August, 2013. Hope to hear from you soon, if you have an event you would like to tell others about for next weeks issue call me at 573-473-7644 before Friday. Have a great week...
