School and candidate sessions planned for July 16 and July 20
Two local events are planned this month to help voters gather information before casting their votes in the Aug. 7 primary election.
The Gainesville R-5 Board of Education will host an informational meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, July 16, about Proposition Gainesville Bulldogs, the district’s proposal asking voters to approve a 75-cent tax levy increase in the upcoming election.
The informational meeting will be held in the high school library following the school’s board regular meeting. Food and refreshments will be served.
A “Meet the Candidates” fundraiser dinner will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, July 20, at The Center on Highway 5 north at the Gainesville city limits. (This is a correction to last week’s announcement – and to the July calendar of activities published by The Center, which incorrectly shows the event as starting at 5 p.m.)
Candidates will speak and answer questions during dinner, which costs $8 and includes beverage and dessert.
The dinner is sponsored by a Thrivent Financial Action team in partnership with the Ozark County Senior Citizens Center Board.
