Two great events both take place this weekend.

Local hero, Sgt. Shawn Farrell II was killed in action on April 28 2014, while in Nejrab District, Kapisa province, Afghanistan. Shawn passed away from wounds he sustained when enemy forces attacked his unit with small arms fire.

In memory of Shawn, the creation of the Sgt. Shawn Farrell II Memorial Scholarship Fund was born and this year they are putting together two great events that have something for everyone.

Both events are this Saturday July 15th, with the first being the Annual Bad Bass Tournament that if you are into fishing, you have to be apart of this great event. It will take place at Marbletown Park, Tongore Road, Stone Ridge, NY and offer anglers a chance a some great prizes, like $750 1st place, BBQ grill 2nd place, and a really cool fish finder for 3rd place. They will also have a very cool prize for the biggest trout!

If you have motorcycle and want to take part in a great Poker Run they are also doing that on Saturday with registration starting at 8:00 am and
Kick Stands up at 9:00am with a bunch of beautiful stops along the way. Enjoy a Pig Roast BBQ, Music and a 50/50 Raffle after at the Marbletown park.
