The Ashkum Lions Club will have its annual Homecoming event this weekend.
The entertainment is lined up for Saturday and Sunday,
“There’s plenty of activities throughout the weekend planned,” said Brooke Johnson, one of the organizers.
There’s the craft vendors, food stand, beer garden, big six wheel, bingo, miniature golf, trackless train, inflatable adventures and dime toss.
There will be a free Saturday entertainment and nightly drawings. The grand prize drawing will be at 7 p.m. Sunday.
“We’ve tried to bring back a few things and have new things,” Johnson said.
The baby contest will be back Sunday morning.
Family Feud will have families fighting for bragging rights.
The golf cart parade will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, then afterwards will be the golf card scavenger hunt.
