Beast Feast
The 2nd Annual Levy County Schools Foundation Beast Feast will begin at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Black Prong Equestrian Center  on County Road 337 in Bronson.
An interesting selection of specialties like gator tail, possum ribs and venison, along with some good old fashioned Southern classics like mullet, grits and swamp cabbage will be served. There will be door prizes throughout the evening and a live auction. Adult tickets are $20 each in advance, or $25 at the gate. Student tickets are $10 for children 8 to 17 years old — available at the gate only. Children 7 years and under get in free. Tickets may be purchased at any Capital City Bank, Drummond Community Bank and Perkins State Bank branch.                      Contact the Levy County Schools Foundation at 352-486-3408 or lcsf@levy.k12.fl.us for more information.

Suwannee River Cleanup
Tired of seeing trash along the banks of the Suwannee River? Pure Water Wilderness is hosting its 3rd Annual Suwannee River Cleanup Saturday, Oct. 8, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. There are three start locations to choose from, covering about 12 miles of river: Hart Springs to Otter Springs, Otter Springs to the Suwannee Gables Hotel, and Suwannee Gables Hotel to Hinton Landing.
The first 50 participants will get a free T-shirt, and a free lunch will be provided after the event at Hinton Landing for all. There will also be opportunities to win prizes.
If interested, let Donna Creamer, executive director for Pure Water Wildnerness, know by Friday. She can be contacted at 352-463-3467 or by email at donna@purewaterwilderness.com.
