The Crawfish Kings are proudly presenting the 1st Annual Obion County Crawfish Festival & Kids Day in the Park May 24, 2014
This venture has been an ongoing idea of ours for years. We have partnered with the Obion County Fairgrounds for use of their facilities, and they will be heavily involved in various aspects of the daily activities. Obion County has been in desperate need of events like this for the citizens to enjoy, and we are making this a reality.
The day's events are numerous and will start early on May 24, 2014. Please visit the individual links on the left for more information on the following events: a 5K run and 2K run/walk, Poker Run, Cornhole Tournament, Softball Tournament, Tennis Tournament, Beauty Pageant, Golf Challenge, and Crawfish Idol. There will also be live bands performing throughout the day. We have also partnered with Pope Concessions, LLC in Greenfield, Tennessee to bring other food options, as well as kid's carnival rides. The event list is still multiplying and will ensure everyone has something fun and exciting to do throughout the day.

Reed's St. Jude story has just begun...
Reed was playing basketball on the 6th grade middle school one week then diangnosed with a inoperable brain tumor 2 days after Christmas. We were quickly refered to St. Jude where Reed started a 6 week regimen of radiation. In the middle of April, Reed started a year-long chemotherapy treatment plan.
We found that St. Jude is much more than a hospital, it is a community!
We expected to walk in to a solumn hospital treating cancer patients. Instead we found a loving "family" of medical professionals that offered kids love and hope. At a time when you are confronted with the worst possible situation it is amazing to find a group of people that sincerly care.
The Bible says "I tell you the truth, what you did for the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!" That is St. Jude! Everyone we have met on this journey shows that statement in there everyday life. From the valet parking guys to our Neurologist --- they all are the "hands & feet" of Jesus.
Praying for Reed, Thankful for St. Jude
Reed's parents are Matt and Charla Butler
