BOGGSVILLE BOX SOCIAL AND PIE AUCTION: Join us at Boggsville on Saturday, July 8, for an old fashioned box social and pie auction from 4 p.m. to ???. Good family fun – games, music, dancing, homemade ice cream, and drinks provided free. Help us break in the new dance floor at Boggsville. Play games, meet some new people, and enjoy this family experience. Bring a box lunch for yourself, (or buy one there) and a box for one or two more people. Place a menu on the outside of the second box and state how many people the lunch will feed. This box will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Be creative, use boxes, baskets, bucket or something unique of your choice. For more information, call 688-2508.
