She said they wanted to do volunteer events to “bring attention to our town and to be our town’s folk together.”

“We’re interested in getting our children and our community involved,” said Varner. “I pass people in the street and no one is smiling. We’re loosing our society; we need to be a family and there’s a too many talented people here to let it go to waste.”

She said she could put out a monthly calendar of all the events to be done and the events should start in February.

“If you’re willing to put in the work we’re willing to support you,” said Hougland and the council approved.

Resident Danny Ricko approached the council about putting on a wrestling tournament with a small concert during intermission ever month at the town’s gym.

“I finance my own group and team up with a group from out of Alabama,” said Ricko. “It’s a family-friendly event.”

He said the first would be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26 and if that went well then the next would be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23.
