The annual Community Cook-Out is coming up next week for Vernon Parish residents.

Food, drinks, entertainment, and door prizes will be available at this family event, sponsored by City Savings Bank.

Entertainment will be provided by Old Man Band. The group is made up of four members and has a bluesy, honky-tonk sound. They see themselves as "the representation of the thousands of non-professional bands throughout America who are not recording artists but who just enjoy playing music whether it be in garages, basements, porches or on some street corner." They spend a lot of their time playing music for charitable events, civic organizations, benefits, nursing homes, crippled children's camps, festivals, and other ministries. "It's not about the money, it's about helping others."

The Community Cook-Out will be 6 p.m. - 8 p.m., Friday, April 28, at the Vernon Parish Fairgrounds, 276 HM Stevens Boulevard.
