Warrensburg Youth Football fundraisers

The Warrensburg Youth Football Booster Club members express thanks to all who purchased raffle tickets for their recent fundraiser. The drawing was held just before the holidays. They had three lucky winners who were apparently happy to have won in time to have some extra cash for Christmas. Football Booster Club members also said they now have license plate frames bearing the slogan "Warrensburg Burghers" for sale at Gino's Pizzeria, George Henry's and Direct Deposit. Stop by any of these local businesses to purchase one for $5 and help support the town's youth football league, they said.

Board discusses water quality, hydropower

An addition of soda ash to the town water supply is now under way to reduce the levels of copper in several of the homes served by the Water District. This generally effects residents on Horicon Ave. near Countryside Adult Home, with some in the region perhaps experiencing slightly milky water. Town residents are to be assured, however, that despite its appearance, the water remains healthy and meets the state standards.
