Benefit dinner for 'Hair Bear'
A fundraiser for Brian "Hair Bear" Keith will be held the afternoon of April 30 at the V.F.W. Post 4821 at 3754 Main St. in Warrensburg. Although the event starts at noon, a spaghetti dinner will be served at 4 p.m., and donations of $10 will be collected. Music will be provided by After FX deejay.
