Lets help Over My Head homeless shelter at this show!
Attention Somernites Cruisers, At the final Somernites show on Sat. Oct. 28th we will be hosting a donation drive to benefit Over My Head of Somerset.  Over My Head is a new homeless shelter that services short-term guests with critical and immediate needs. In many cases these needs are the most basic (warm bed and a hot meal). The shelter has also helped several veterans in the 18 months their doors have been open.
We ask that you bring donations of the following…5 lbs of sugar, multi… pack paper towels, multi pack toilet paper, bottled water (24 or 32 pack), coffee (ground), paper plates, cups and plastic spoons/forks. Cash donations of any amount are also welcome.
Representatives from the shelter will be at the show with a table near Citizens Bank to accept your donations. Or, you may donate monetarily by visiting their Facebook Page.

Last Fun Run of the year is to Cumberland Falls Park!
The Saturday Morning Fun Run will rally at Hardee’s South (stoplight #22 on south US 27) at 8:00am for a FREE breakfast for Fun Run participants. We will then depart at 9:00am(edt) for the final Fun Run of the year…Cumberland Falls State Park!
Known as the ‘Niagara of the South’ Cumberland Falls forms a 125′ wide curtain of water that plunges 60′ into the gorge below, making it the 2nd largest waterfall in North America.
