Back the Blue Fish Fry Sponsored by Dexter VFW
Dexter, Missouri - On Saturday, July 29, 2017 the Dexter VFW Post 2659 will host a “Back the Blue” Fish Fry.

"These men and women serve on a front line as we have," commented Commander of the VFW Robert Myers. "They do not know who is friendly and who is foe until the conflict arises. It maybe from what appears to be a simple traffic stop quickly escalated in force, or to a domestic disturbance upon arrival walking into a hail of gun fire."

Join them from Noon to 6:00 p.m. and support your local law enforcement.

All proceeds will go to the Dexter Police Department.  Other fundraisers are in the planning stages for EMS and Fire.

Cost of the meal is $7.00 with children 12 and under free.  You will be served delicious fried catfish, hush puppies, cole slaw, french fries and a drink.

The new FVW Canteen is located at 23 North Locust Street in Dexter.

There will also be games for the kids and adults,  an 8 ball tournament, dart tournament, basketball shooting for kids, corn hole events and 50/50 as well.

Jill has volunteered for several years helping the community running the concession stand at the little league baseball and softball games at Bloomfield City Park.  Even after her son has graduated from high school she continued to show up in the heat and gets everything ready so the parents and family have something cold to drink and a snack as they watch their little leaguers play on the field.

The award is provided by Modern Woodman and a $50 donation will be given to a charity of the recipient's choice.  Mrs. Gibbs has chosen Claus for a Cause as her charity.

Southeast Missouri Regional Jazz Orchestra to Offer FREE Concert
Dexter, Missouri - The Southeast Missouri Regional Jazz Orchestra will offer a "Beat the Heat" FREE Concert on Friday, August 4, 2017 at the Dexter High School auditorium.  The concert will begin at 7:00 p.m. 

The Southeast Missouri Regional Jazz Orchestra was founded in the year 2000 and has been performing summer concerts ever since.  This year is their 17th season and they are thrilled to continue to make music for their audience.  Jazz is America’s original art form. It is their honor to share it with you.
The orchestra will perform a variety of musical styles, including some traditional favorites like In the Mood, A Switch in Time, and Count Bubba; classics such as Let it Be and The Way I Feel About You; movie tunes including Beauty and the Beast and The Rainbow Connection (originally performed by Kermit the Frog in The Muppet Movie), and patriotic songs including The Star-Spangled Banner and The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.  They are also working on a number of other tunes, some new and some that they haven’t played in several years.  Of course, no performance of theirs would be complete without their traditional closer, The Chicken.

This year’s orchestra is comprised of nineteen musicians from diverse ages and occupations, including eight public school teachers, one public school superintendent, one university student counselor, two college students, four high school students, one middle school student, one stay-at-home mom, and one casino bank supervisor.  They have five new members this year.
