FOSSIL - In the face of a severe city budget crisis, volunteers and businesses of Fossil have rallied to raise funds to re-open the community's recently-closed public library, to help a child in need of medical care, and to raise funds for maintenance of city parks and other community improvement projects.

A community-wide Murder Mystery Weekend organized by the Friends of the Fossil Library is set for Oct. 3 and 4 at Fossil.

Visitors and residents may participate as a mystery solver by registering at the Fossil Public Library either day.

The Fossil Community Action Group will host an old-fashioned stew and biscuit dinner Oct. 4 at the Wheeler County Fairgrounds in Fossil at $5 for adults and $2.50 for children.

Contact Lyn Craig at (541) 763-2355 or for further information or a free schedule of events.
