Backpack giveaway at National Night Out

Connor Lundequam, 7, who will be starting third-grade at Woodland Elementary, picks out a backpack with help from Red Cedar Church volunteer Matt Sharpley. Looking on is Connor's grandpa Leon Lundequam.

Volunteers from Red Cedar Church of Rice Lake gave out backpacks at the National Night Out event on Aug. 7 at the Anderson Park in Barron. Other activities at that location included a climbing wall, train rides, kids games in a pavilion, free food and drink and a chance to meet police officers, firefighters and emergency workers.

Other National Night Out events took place in Rice Lake, Cameron, Chetek and Turtle Lake.
