The Eagle Bend PTSA is sponsoring a Midwinter Carnival on Saturday, January 12, at the high school. This is the first time in many years for Eagle Bend to have such an event. Various community minded groups throughout Eagle Bend will be operating booths at the carnival. Each group has a special need for raising money—all worthwhile benefits. The PTSA will use its portion of the profits to provide scholarships to seniors going on to any accredited school and also for financial help in buying books for the local Right to Read program.
