Please save the date for Saturday, June 29 when “Remembering August: A Benefit for Tatymn and Bubba” will be held at the Great Valley Fire Hall located at 6035 Depot St. from 2–8 p.m. August Lindell passed away in February as a result of a tragic accident.


All proceeds from the benefit will be donated to a college fund for August’s children, Tatymn and Theryn (“Bubba”), in care of their grandparents. This will be a wonderful opportunity to share the joy of having known August with his family and children.


Advance sale tickets are available for $10 and will be available for $15 at the door. Admission includes a chance to win a 32-inch flat screen television or a hand crafted picnic table. Entertainment includes live music performed by the band We Speak Canadian, DJ Asa Moss, a silent auction, a Chinese auction, 50/50 raffles every hour and much more. A complete list of auction items appears on the Remembering August Facebook page.


Donations for both the silent and Chinese auctions can be dropped off at Day’s Auto on the Martin Road in Great Valley or call (716) 699-5802 for pickup.
