Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
DENISON, TX -- Some one of a kind benches, all made for a good cause, arrived in Denison today.
Donors received their yellow jacket benches Wednesday. The benches are made of leftover lumber from Yellow Jacket Boats, a local boat maker in the 1950's.
The benches were sold to local business leaders for $2,000 in an effort to raise money for the Munson Stadium renovation project. They each have a dashboard tag from one of the original boats. Organizers say they sold out in one day.
"And as a result of that we've had a lot of other people buy bricks and make other donations. So, we're pretty close to our goal, not close but we're getting closer to our goal of $4.9 million and of course all that money gonna be used for the renovation of the stadium."
The benches brought in $24,000.
