Snowmachine drag racing planned

The Cook Inlet Lions Club will hold a committee meeting at 2 p.m. Saturday to organize snowmachine drag racing. Meet at the Kenai Moose Family Center on the Kenai Spur Highway.

The Lions plan to host five events this winter at the Kenai Floatplane Basin. This will be a major fund-raiser for the organization, allowing it to offer humanitarian services to the community.

Because of the Thanksgiving, the Totem Tracers Genealogy Society meeting at the Kenai Community Library has been rescheduled to 6:30 p.m. the last Thursday of the month.

The discussion will be about Civil War records and pension files. Everyone is welcome.

Concert helps food bank

Country music fans who do not already have tickets to Sunday's Andy Griggs concert at Kenai Central High School can get a reduced admission if they bring at least two cans of food to donate to the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank. With the food, admission to any unsold seat in the balcony will cost $15. One winner also will get to meet Griggs after the concert, and another will be upgraded to front row seats. The concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. and includes country singer Gary Allan.
