Poker Run supports Lockett family

The Hub City Classic Car Show organizers have decided to give all the proceeds of this year's Poker Run to the family of Kirsten Russell Lockett, who was murdered recently. The tragedy has struck the community very hard and the needs are great for her children.

 Registration for the poker run will be from 8 - 10 a.m. at the Flying J in conjunction with the car show registration. The fee is $25 for the first hand and $10 for each additional hand. The run is open to everyone. Bikers have the option of also displaying their motorcycle at the car show and entering to win a trophy for best bike. Other entrants can participate by bike or car and do not need to be part of the car show. The run will go from 10:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. and will be limited to stops in Lincoln County.

The Friday, Aug. 21 evening events include a meal provided by the Junior Class Parents, Open House for the new school, "We've Got Talent" contest, and a fireworks finale at to be held at the Limon School Complex.

It the spirit of remembrance of the love and joy that Kirsten spread in our community, an inflatable water park will be set up in the stoplight park. Two water slides, a squirt gun obstacle course, and two waterless bouncy houses will complete the scene. Fabulous cars, incredible food, and great vendors will fill downtown Limon. Soap box cars will race, a pinewood derby will be held, Danny Adams, local DJ will entertain, horse shoes will be played, the Rotary Beer garden and the museum will be open all day Saturday, Aug. 22. Please mark your calendars for August 21 and 22 and join us as our community comes together to support a local family.
