Detention saves the day for Dusty’s Kids

The 19th Annual Dusty Elam Foundation benefit will still kick off Friday with “Dusty’s Day” — designated for special needs students in Coffee County to enjoy a day of fun.

But due to inclement weather the fun will be moving from the Elam farm on Woodbury Highway to Detention at the Elementary in Morrison.

Foundation organizers made the announcement late Thursday with stormy weather in the Friday forecast.
