Aces Fall To Nokomis, Collect For Food Pantry

The Mulberry Grove Aces are 0 and 2 in the Morrisonville Mohawk Classic after losing 80 to 46 Monday night against Nokomis.

The basketball Aces host Vandalia tonight (Tuesday) in a game that is being played as part of the tournament. There will be a junior varsity game before the varsity game.

At tonight’s game, the Mulberry Grove National Honor Society is collecting food and paper products for the Bond County Food Pantry in Greenville. In lieu of an admission fee, donations will be accepted.

Items accepted include canned food such as Spaghettios, Hamburger Helper, and peanut butter and jelly. Paper product suggestions are toilet paper, nose tissues and paper towels.

National Honor Society members will be at each entrance to accept donations.

The Aces have two other games at Morrisonville later this week. They play Carlinville at 7:15 Thursday and Edinburg at 5:30 Friday.
