Wakarusa Maple Syrup Festival organizers are looking for someone to coordinate the Baby Olympics event.

This is a simple event for children who can crawl through 36 months. Babies participate in the hurdles, sprint and softball throw. The activity takes place at Bible Baptist Church at noon Saturday. Anyone who is able to coordinate this event and wants to volunteer can contact Doris Biller at the Chamber office 862-4344.

Festival organizers are bringing in a one-of-a-kind, never-before-seen-in-the-Wakarusa-area act that is still in need of funding. Contact the Chamber Office at 862-4344 for full details.
