Barbecue, auction to fund Crime Stoppers efforts

Limestone County Crime Stoppers, whose motto is “take a bite out of crime,” invites residents to take a bite of barbecue at their fundraiser coming up next month.
One of the group’s largest sources of income is its annual barbecue-auction fundraiser, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 13, at Enge-Washington Intermediate School, 701 S. Ellis St. in Groesbeck. Serving is 6-7 p.m., with takeout available for those who can’t stay. Those who do remain, however, will be able to take part in a silent auction, also 6-7 p.m. and a live auction after that, about 7:15 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person for the all-you-can-eat meal.
Crime Stoppers Chairman Linda Jordan, of Prairie Hill, spoke at the Rotary Club of Mexia recently to talk about the group and tell how people can impact the solving of crimes in Limestone County.
Crime Stoppers started in Limestone County in the early 1980s and is associated with the state Crime Stoppers group. Because it is a 501(c)3 organization, donations are tax-deductible.
