A benefit to help support the annual apple festival fiddle contest is scheduled 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24 at the United Methodist Church in Versailles. The event is free to attend, but donations will be accepted and an auction will take place. Money raised will help ensure the continuation of the annual fiddle contest. Live fiddle music will be featured, including music by Junior Marriott and several other musicians. Local musicians are welcome to play in a “jam session.” For more information, contact Jay White, 573-789-0144.
