Dear Friends of the Bottoms !!
Five years ago, a group of caring and concerned people got together to help out our local “Bottoms” area. This area includes Jacob, Gorham, Cora, Raddle, Sand Ridge and Grand Tower. The “Community for a Safe Levee” was created and you have helped us raise in excess of $140,000 for lock repairs, maintenance repairs and now a down payment to purchase two new pumps. In so doing, you have helped us protect over 30,000 acres of prime farm land, along with beautiful family homes, churches and businesses. This area is also a vital part of Jackson County’s economic structure.
I know this sounds like another “reason for a party”, but actually it our way to raise serious money to help with projects that are vital to the survival of Jacob/Gorham/Grand Tower “Bottoms” area.
On JUNE 9, 2018, our fund raiser “Levee Fest” will again take place at Bottoms Up Family Bar and Grill in Jacob. This will be a fun day full of different activities to attract hundreds of people from many different areas. The day includes a 5K Run/Walk, Wine tasting, Bottom’s Up great fried chicken dinner from 4-7, along with Downstate Music Co. playing music at 8:00 p.m. There will be a live auction and a silent auction, with items visible from 6:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.!
