A Back to School Bash is being planned for Saturday, Aug. 18 by the Kenly Parks and Recreation Committee with funding from local businesses and community leaders.
The event will be held on the field behind the old Kenly Elementary School.

Douglas said he would like to see the Parks and Recreation Committee do something to give back to the community and the back pack give away is one idea.
