The Coal Valley Lions Club is hosting a Trivia Night for Brenda Axtell on Friday, November 9th at the Rock (next to Blackhawk Bank & Trust) from 7 to 9 p.m. $10 per person to play...or $80 per table. We are having a bake sale, silent auction, raffles, a 50-50 raffle, and other various and sundry things to raise money for Brenda. Brenda had cancer, thought it was all gone and they found a couple more spots, then as if she didn't have enough bad things going on in her life she was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, all this with minimal insurance.
