State Sen. Brian Birdwell is set to speak on “Saving the Next Generation” during a fundraiser Sunday (July 28) at Lakeside Baptist Church for an afterschool program lead by Brazos River Baptist Church on FM 2425 toward Glen Rose. The fundraiser will start at 3 and will feature live and silent auctions. The new Kidzone afterschool program will be for Mambrino students who are recommended by school officials. It will involve tutoring, sports activities, non-denominational chapel activites and a meal. Volunteers from all churches are welcome to help. Contact Terry McNew at 817-573-5759.
