Stuff the Bus event planned

Durham School Services sponsors a Stuff the Bus school supply drive event at OfficeMax and Walmart Supercenter in Casa Grande this Saturday and July 13 and 20. Area residents may support the cause by donating school supplies including pens, pencils, paper, tablets, crayons, colored pencils, school scissors, glue, tablets, spiral notebooks, backpacks and other items.

Upcoming 100th anniversary

American Legion Post 8 will be celebrating its 100th anniversary on July 31. Post 8 in Casa Grande was named after Fred A. Humphreys, a local World War I veteran killed in France in 1918. The group is looking for any information on family that may still be in the area. Those with information may call Commander Donald Graham at 520-431-3838.
