Family Literacy Center’s annual Camel Races are going on at the Center Building this Friday. Wooden racing camels, decorated by local sponsors, racing down the field to the toss of the big, fuzzy dice. First to cross the finish line wins. You can bet on your favorites. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and include dinner, dessert, snacks and chances for door prizes plus lots of fun while you cheer on your favorite Camel.
