A fish fry fundraiser is set for tonight at the Knox Moose Family Center to benefit the family of Knox Middle School student Christina Franks.
Christina, 13, is in need of a heart transplant. She was diagnosed with an enlarged heart two years ago and was hospitalized in July at Riley Hospital for Children as the left ventricle in her heart was failing. She did have surgery in August to install an exterior heart pump which has taken over the work of her heart until she receives a heart transplant.
The Knox citywide yard sale is scheduled for this Saturday, May 14th from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. No permit is required for that day only. You may participate if you live in the city limits and in the two mile jurisdiction.
The only signs permitted will be those provided by City Hall and those signs are $.50 each. Additional sale dates in conjunction with the citywide sale will require the normal permit and two signs are included in the permit price.
