<i>Q: Why wasn't the music group, the Benders, at the fair this year? How can I contact them?</i>

Roger Flory, president of the Douglas County Fair Board, said the band's schedule did not fit in with the fair's schedule this year. He said the board will try to get the band for next year because it was popular. He did not have a contact number for the band.

The Benders, from Wichita, will be coming to Lawrence Oct. 20 for Lawrence Memorial Hospital's Stepping Out Against Breast Cancer Dance at the Lawrence Holidome, 200 McDonald Drive. Proceeds from the dance will provide mammograms to women who can't afford medical insurance and will go to help Breast Cancer Action for education programs. Tickets are $17.50 each and are availbale at LMH's gift shop, or call Belinda Rehmer in community relations at 749-6100.
