This article submitted by Stephanie Everson on 08/05/97.

The 22nd annual Roscoe Fun Day is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 9, at the Roscoe Recreational Club-Home of the Rangers Park. Included in the day's events is a volleyball tournament, children's games, a beer garden, the annual parade, and entertainment by the band "Keystone" who will perform from 8:30 to 12:30 p.m. A flea market, the first for Roscoe Fun Day, will also continue all day.

The various activities will continue on throughout the day, with a round robin pool play volleyball tournament starting at 9 a.m. Through the process of elimination, several teams will advance from there into various brackets.

The first place team will receive a trophy and cash prize, and the winners from each bracket will also receive cash prizes. Currently, more than 20 teams have signed up, some of who played together last year, as well. Organizers are hoping for 32 teams, which will also up the cash prizes, since half the teams' entry fees will be paid out to the winning teams.

Children's games and wagon rides are also scheduled for the day, continuing on until the annual parade at 7:30 p.m. Several fun, humorous, and other varied entrants will walk the parade route, which will begin on the east edge of town.

The parade will continue for around a half hour, and at 8:30 p.m. "Keystone" will play for the street dance until 12:30 a.m. There will be much food, including burgers and freshly made donuts, as well as a beer garden. There will be something fun for everyone. For more information, call Mike Christian at 320-243-4520 or Art Schlangen at 320-597-3591.
