Like a scheme from the mind of Mark Twain, the planners of our weekends have figured ways to raise money while disguising the effort as fun. Would you like some savory pasties?

It’s just a fundraiser for the congregation of the charming Memorial Presbyterian Church on North Street in Wilkes-Barre.

A March Madness party? Fun, fun, games and big screen TVs, all the better to watch college basketball. You might not even notice you’re raising money for the CYC in Wilkes-Barre.

And a Night at the Races is always a hoot. And just the thing to fill the coffers of the Jenkins Township Hose Co. in Port Griffith.

All in a weekend.
