This year Junk Jaunt took a new approach utilizing the benefit of the event to generate funding in Cairo. The Village rented spaces this year at the North Ball Field, Christ Lutheran Church and the Cairo Community Center. Registration fees from those locations generated donations to the Cairo Ball Association for $1,250, Christ Lutheran Church for $525 and the Cairo Community Center for $1,235.
Mayor, Bill Heger presented the Junk Jaunt contribution check to Clint Boersen, Vice President of the Cairo Ball Association on Monday. Clint said that this contribution will go along way to continuing the improvements of the ball fields. Our ball fields are an excellent source of entertainment for our youth and revenue for our area businesses.
