Concerned Citizens of Russellville-Logan County has a number of activities planned in May, which can benefit those in need and give the public an opportunity to assist in funding those projects.

The mission of Concerned Citizens is to help feed the needy, educate our youth, and help the community in a Godly manner.

Two events are planned this Friday, May 2. First is offering a grilled pork chop meal in front of the Logan County Chamber of Commerce on Carrico Park Square from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. A meal of pork chops, chips, cookies and a drink will cost $6. Donations will also be accepted.

Community leaders are helping with the grilling. Funds will be used on the After School Tutorial program, the Summer Program and the Food Bank.

Then Friday beginning at 7 p.m., Praise Night will be held at the KP Hall, 428 East Fifth Street, at Russellville. Special guests will be Rev.
