The Gillett Coon Supper, a community fund-raiser that has long been a popular political stop, is at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in the school gymnasium in Gillett.

The festivities begin with another fund-raiser, the Berry Pre-Coon Supper Reception in the Berry Farm Shop in Gillett. It raises money for scholarships to Arkansas State University that honor former U.S. Rep. Marion and Carolyn Berry. Scholarship recipients must have an interest in public service. The reception is at 3:30 p.m. and tickets are $30 each. They also welcome sponsorships for $500 and $1,000 contributions.

For tickets to the Coon Supper call Larry Bauer at 870-830-4002.

Tickets to the reception and dinner are also available at the door. To sponsor the reception call Ben Noble at 501-772-9473 or Gabe Holmstrom at 479-409-3329.
