Sep. 3—Wes Dyer organized the 15th annual Poker Run on Lake Jacksonville. The event took place Saturday, July 23. The Poker Run was reportedly very successful with everyone having lots of fun, with 165 wristbands sold. Each participant had to purchase a wristband to enter the event.

Proceeds from the Poker Run, donated annually to three non-profits, benefited Elijah's Retreat, Highway 69 Mission and the Lake Jacksonville Association this year, with each of the organizations receiving equal contributions.
