Community gathers to support local pre-school

The community gathered Thursday evening to help raise money for the pre-school at the First Presbyterian Church in Ottumwa.

Members of the congregation held a spaghetti dinner, along with a silent auction to help raise funds for the school.

"We are having a silent auction tonight; we have some baskets, a mom and me basket, a mom's day basket, a dad's day out basket, a let's learn basket and a coffee time basket; and we are going to have a silent auction and that will end at 7:30 p.m. when our open house ends tonight. Our crooked house raffle ends November 7th when we will draw right outside on our playground the lucky winner," said Lisa Duff.

Raffle tickets can still be purchased at 641-684-5465.
