RUMFORD — The Rumford Eagles will sponsor the Mountain Valley Kids Festival, a benefit for local youth groups, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 10, at the Rumford Eagles Bingo Hall.

The groups involved include the Greater Rumford Area Community Center, Mexico Recreation Department, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Explorers, area Youth Ministry, area Youth Football, area Youth Cheerleaders and the Webb River Junior Rifle Club.

The group is looking for donations in the way of cash or items that can be added to the raffle tables that will be displayed during the event. All donations and their sponsors will be posted for viewing at the club and on the Eagles’ Web site, www.rumfordeagles.foe.com.

All contributors will receive a list of the winners along with the raffle they won. All money received from the event will be divided evenly among the participating area youth groups.

During the day, there will be representatives from the local police, fire, medical, ambulance and other groups. There will be a spaghetti supper served from 5 to 7 p.m. in the function hall. In the evening, there will be a karaoke contest.

Cost for the supper and karaoke will be $8 or $5 for supper or karaoke. Any area youth group that would like to be involved needs to sign up before April 3. For more information, contact Fred Allen by e-mailing [email protected] or call 739-9798.
