The fourth annual Lake Henry Hay Raze will get under way Saturday, June 19, at 9 a.m. with a volleyball tournament at Lions Park.

At 10 a.m., the little league tournament will take place. Teams participating in the baseball tournament are Lake Henry, St. Martin, Spring Hill, and Regal. At 10:30 a.m., the kiddie parade entries will start lining up at the baseball field. The parade will get under way at 11 a.m. and head down Janette Court (Second Street) to the Lions Park.

Following the parade, the kid's games will get started at the Lions Park on the eastern edge of Lake Henry. Games will include a scavenger hunt on the grounds, ring toss, and more. The Pepsi Moon walk will also be on the grounds. At 1:30 p.m., bingo and a horseshoe tournament will get under way at the park.

At 2 p.m. there will be an old timer's baseball game. Former baseball players interested in playing are encouraged to attend. Teams will be picked prior to the start of the game. Anyone who played baseball is welcome.

At 3 p.m. will be the Hay Raze Olympics which includes 10 events. Among the events are a bean bag toss, free throw shot, obstacle course, suitcase race, bat spin, round bale roll, and bale toss. Area residents are urged to get their four-person teams together to see who can maneuver the round bales through the obstacle course the fastest or toss a square hay bale the furthest. Billy D. and the Crystals will entertain from 8 p.m. to 12 midnight at the outdoor dance at the park. At 10 p.m. raffle winners will be announced (need not be present to win).
