Holliday Lake State Park hosts “From Dusk to Dawn” on Friday, Aug. 31 from 9-10 p.m. at the Amphitheater. When the sun goes down many changes start to happen in the park as day becomes night: the air becomes cooler, the grass becomes damp with dew, and certain creatures begin to wake up from a long day’s rest. Join the campfire to explore the nightly world of birds, bugs and bats. You might see a little brown bat, hear an Eastern screech-owl, or even feel the gentle tickle of a lightning bug’s antennae. The night can get dark and cool, so a flashlight and jacket are recommended. For more information, call (434) 248-6308.
The Buckingham County FFA chapters are hosting a canned food drive. Bring any canned food goods or monetary donation to the Buckingham vs. Appomattox football game on Friday at 7 p.m. All donations collected by the Buckingham FFA will go to the Christian Outreach Program in New Canton.
