ETC… for Friday, November 15th

The Red River Bulldogs begin their playoff trek tonight at Pat Strother Memorial Stadium.  The Oakdale Warriors will be in town.  The game begins at 7:00 pm.  Red River is 4-5 overall and 3-3 in district play.  Red River is seeded #9 in the Power Rankings.

The Town Council on Tuesday night voted to extend Stadium Drive (the street beside the football field) south to meet up with Red Oak Road.  This will give a second access to parking at the south of the stadium once construction is completed.  School Superintendent Alison Hughes told the board Monday night that the right-of-way for the road had been secured and construction should begin soon.

The Red River Council on Aging is asking your help in keeping senior citizens warm this winter. The annual CoA Community Blanket Drive will be held from 10:00 am until 12:00 Noon on Monday at the CoA on Front Street.

Get your dancing shoes out. Saturday night is the Seniors Dance at the Council on Aging on Front Street.  Dance for 7:00 to 10:00 pm to the music of The Playmates.  Admission is $6.00.

Saturday is election day. If you did not vote early or via absentee ballot please go vote tomorrow.  The local Assessor’s race will be decided between Dovie Neal Beard and Tenisha Canterbury.  The other candidate in the race, Vaughn Womack, endorsed Beard, “She is clearly the only candidate with the qualifications and experience needed to run the Assessor’s Office in the same fair, honest and equitable way that the residents of Red River have been accustomed to in the past.”
