The participants of the 5K for Domestic Violence Awareness.

The 9th annual Domestic Violence Awareness Weekend is set for next weekend, July 10-11 at the Roulette Fire Hall.

The event begins at 7 p.m. Friday, July 10 with a 5K walk (registration is $25), quarter bingo, ice cream social and chance auction.

It continues on Saturday, July 11 with a cornhole tournament, quarter bingo, chance auction, homemade barbecue sauce contest, chocolate dessert contest and a chicken barbecue.
