The Pleasantville community is using their traditional 4th of July celebration to raise money for one of their own. 7-year-old Alyssa Scheve is currently recovering after having a brain tumor removed at the end of May. Brandon and Angel Bingham say that the 4th of July benefit will help alleviate some of the family’s financial stress during their trying time. Activities include a parade, 50/50 raffle, silent auction, games at the park, and more. Team Alyssa T-Shirts are also being sold in support of the family. Contact Kim Friday at Pleasantville State Bank for more information.
