FROM TOPEKA CITY HALL -- The Topeka/ Shawnee County Homeless Task Force will be hosting a Men’s and Co-Rec softball tournament on September 8 in Felker Park to help raise funds for Harvesters – The Community Food Network.
The tournament will begin at 8:00 that morning. Teams may register by calling Corrie Wright at 817-2109. All proceeds will benefit Harvesters to help provide food for hungry children, families and seniors in our community.
