A spaghetti dinner fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, May 4, 2016, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Tarkio Elementary Cafeteria to raise money for three area women fighting cancer. The menu will include spaghetti, bread, salad, and dessert, with water, tea and lemonade. Free will donations will be accepted, with all money raised to be split equally between Tammy Moore, Kris Traughber, and Wendy Schaefer, to help with medical expenses due to cancer.

In addition to the spaghetti dinner, funds are also being raised for the three women through a Kansas City Royals’ ticket giveaway. Two tickets to the Royals vs. Cleveland Indians game on Monday, July 18, 2016, at 7:15 p.m. will be given away the last evening of the Tarkio Rodeo, Saturday, June 11 (you need not be present to win). The tickets were donated by the Atchison-Holt Electric Cooperative and include parking costs, seats in the company’s suite, food, and beverages. Tickets will be sold for $5 apiece at various Tarkio school events. You may also contact Lisa Clement through email at clelis@ tarkio.k12.mo.us or at Tarkio Elementary, 660-736-4177.

Both of these fundraisers are sponsored by the Schoolhouse Rock group.
