The Child Development Center is pleased to invite you to the 28th Annual Pencil Country Classic benefiting Bedford County children with developmental delays who are served by the CDC.
Everything gets underway at 11 a.m. behind the old bank building on the square as well as at Fisherman’s Park. There will be a variety of live entertainment and several food trucks available. There will be fun and games until 2 p.m. Ducks will be dropped in the river at 1:30 p.m. We hope everyone will take advantage of this local new Labor Day weekend event and help United Way of Bedford County, a worthy cause. People can buy a numbered ticket for $5 or a “Quacker Box’ with a half dozen of my fellow ducks for $25. Or they can really go “quackers” and buy a “quacker dozen” for $50. The owner of the winning duck will receive $1,000 with additional prizes will be awarded for 2nd – $500, 3rd – $250, 4th – $150, 5th – $100. You do NOT have to be present to win. Tickets are on sale through members of the United Way board and online. All proceeds from ticket sales will be used to fund various local charitable organizations.
