It’s once again time for the community to rally around one of it’s own. Steve Talley, business owner and non profit organizer, is battling cancer and in his battle will be making dozens of trips to Effingham among other locations. Locals have organized a benefit this Friday at 5pm. It’ll be held at New Beginnings Church of God on Sycamore in Carmi. The dinner is $10 and includes fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, a dinner roll and dessert. Kids under 5 eat for half price. An auction will follow the dinner around 7pm and there are many items available. You can find more about the items available at the auction by searching for Steve Talley Benefit on facebook. If you have questions or would like more information, contact Kay Talley at 384 – 0000 or drop by S & E Auto on Oak Street in Carmi.
