HELPING A NEIGHBOR. A large crowd kept the food line and tables full on Saturday, April 13, during the Larry and Ruby Schrock Family benefit held at the Arthur Christian School. The event had many activities to offer for all ages and interests including face painting, cake/pie walk, free throw competition, music courtesy of The Gunny Sack Revue, a quilt block class, silent auction and, of course, the food! The benefit ended with a profit of near $34,000, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to help the Schrock family according to organizers. Organizers wish to remind everyone if you were unable to attend the Saturday event, you can still make a monetary donation by sending a check made payable to the Vine Street Christian Church with Schrock Family Benefit in the memo line. The address for the church is 249 S. Vine Street, Arthur, IL 61911. Photo by Kent A. Stock
