Three A’s –activities for all ages! Three A’s and fun are the perfect recipe for summer fun in rural America.

Pet the animals, get your face painted and stroll through the antique tractor show.  Enjoy a lunch of pork chops by the AlWood Lions Club, bingo in the park, and an ice cream social sponsored by the churches of Woodhull. At 4:00 serving of a BBQ Rib Dinner will begin on Division Street and family entertainment until 7 p.m.  As dusk falls, put on your dancing shoes for an old-fashioned street dance.
