With millions of dollars being spent on negativity, come spend your money where it really makes a difference.

This Saturday, Oct. 25, is National Make a Difference Day. Millions of people all over the United States will be making a real difference in the lives of others.

The Friends For Michael Inc., a spinal cord injury organization, will be at the site of the new Henry County Recreation and Services park on U.S. Hwy 421, just north of New Castle, Ky., 1125 Campbellsburg Road, rain or shine.

This is where our all-accessible playground will be built with money we are working to help raise. The day begins at 8 a.m. with the Henry County Farmers Market; doughnuts and coffee will be available at 9 a.m., followed by a day of fun, food, games, inflatables, music, raffles and other activities. The Kentucky State Police will be ID fingerprinting children; there also will be pumpkin painting, a baby/little tot pageant at 11 a.m.; recycle booth to drop off old cell phones and ink jet/laser cartridges, Red Cross blood drive from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., make your own crafts, and more.

A corn hole tournament begins at 1 p.m., and the winner will receive a trip to Florida.

That night, the fun continues at Smith-Berry Winery (www.smithberrywinery.net) with country music and dinner starting at 5 p.m. Proceeds benefit the park project.

There will be a bonfire, too, so bring your S’mores fixins. For information, call (888) 845-7091 or (502) 845-7091.
