Woodburn Annual Ice Cream Supper
The annual Ice Cream Supper will be Saturday, Aug. 8, at the Woodburn Ball Park. Activities include live music, games, an auction and raffle for a charcoal grill package. Live music will be provided by James Hunter. Call 270-529-2301 if you have items to donate for the auction. Pies and cakes are also needed for the cake walk and can be left at Rich Pond Market or brought to the park. See you there!
Beginning Sept. 1, 2015, Woodburn Fire Department's ISO rating will improve from Class 7 to a Class 6, which could lower some homeowner's insurance rates. The department was evaluated this spring and is now working on a plan to further improve the rating.
