Riders up 21-0 in 3rd.
Arcola will team up with WCIA news to "Tackle Hunger". Bring in any of what they call the Super Six: Canned Meats, Canned Meals, Canned Vegetables, Canned Fruit, Boxed Meals, or Peanut Butter. This will be another part of the Cola Wars, as Tuscola will also be collecting food during the week. The Eastern Illinois Food Bank will pick up the food and weigh it, the school with the heaviest amount will be the winner. They will also be collecting money and food at the gate the night of the game. The food/monetary donations will help "tackle hunger" in our community.
Thanks for James Hendrix for the awesome design and installation!
