There will also be a Fall Festival Fundraiser at the Henderson County Fairgrounds from noon until 4 p.m. on October 20th. 

Activities will include:

Registration for a Porker Run starts at 10:00 a.m. and the first bike is out by 11:00 a.m. It's about a 50-60 mile ride. Prizes will be handed out for Best and Worst hand. $15.00 a rider and $20.00 for couples.

Lots of items will be on display in a silent auction including collectibles to memorabilia.
