Knights to have
Tootsie Roll Days
The Knights of Columbus is hosting Tootsie Roll Days this weekend.
The fund-raiser will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Dillons stores, Hy-Vee, Checkers, Alvins, Kmart, Wal-Mart and other stores. On Sunday, it will take place after Masses at Catholic churches.
Gov. Bill Graves has proclaimed this weekend Help the Mentally Retarded Citizen Days in conjunction with the event.
Of the proceeds, 80 percent will go back to the Knights of Columbus to be donated to institutions of their choice, and 20 percent will be used to sponsor the Special Olympics Basketball Tournament.
