  • It's a packed weekend of old fashioned fun every year at the Annual Moss Springs Old Settlers Picnic.
    The grounds will open at 8 a.m. Saturday with the Old Settlers Picnic president, Jared Wicklund. An invocation will be given by Larry Carlisle at 9:30 a.m. Then it's non-stop fun at the picnic site (Two and a half miles east on Burr Oak Road from Fidelity Cloverleaf; then turn east on Bobwhite).
    Just to name a few of the activities everyone looks forward to are: the horseshoe contests; the live music; the water balloon toss; the local exhibits; culinary contests; tug-of-war games; the fellowship and the fun.
    Awards are given to attendees for a wide variety of reasons ranging from “The Tallest Boy,” to the “Husband Calling Competition.”
    Crafts include just about everything: jewelry; photography; quilts; scrapbook pages; art; and also includes an agriculture division.
    Entertainment will be provided by The Radleys at 5:30 p.m.; Night Drawings at 7 p.m.; and Duke Mason at 7:30 p.m.
    On Sunday, the church service will be at 11 a.m., with a potluck immediately following.
