Wade Bartley’s 13th annual Help a Child Benefit started out cooler than expected on Saturday October 17, but the warm hearts of Hopkins County folks brought them out by the droves! The Chili Cookoff, a tractor pull inside the arena, an Ag Mechanics Show and Auction on the grounds and a Reilly Springs Jamboree going on the outdoor stage made a good combination for a successful fundraiser. Results from the fundraiser will be published here soon, but meantime, here are some highlights from the day!
