Pumpkins can be taken to the North Central Missouri Fairgrounds between 12 and 5 o'clock today.

Judging is scheduled after 5 o'clock. A preview for the quilt show is from 5 until 8 o'clock tonight in the former J-C Penney's building of Eastgate Shopping Center.

Union workers at ConAgra Foods will provide a taco supper prior to the “chairs for dreams” auction. The supper is from 4 o'clock until 6 o'clock at the First Christian Church fellowship hall. Free-will donations will be accepted. The public also can view as many as 45 items that are to be sold at auction. Most of them are painted chairs and stools.

One of the most unusual was donated by the T-H-S art department---an old chair cut up into wind chimes. Another is an old chair converted into storage compartments for produce. There also are two old school desks to be sold. Ron Dougan will describe each item and announce who donated it. Bill and Joe Brinser will handle the auction.

Proceeds from the supper and auction benefit the Dream Factory of Northwest Missouri which grants wishes (or dreams) to chronically and terminally ill children.

Returning for the Missouri Day country music show and dance is Young Country. The band performs tonight from 7 until 10 o'clock at the North 65 Center in Trenton. Admission is eight dollars a person. Concessions will be available. More activities are scheduled Saturday and Sunday during the 29th Missouri Day Festival in Trenton.
