It’s back- to-school time!

Throngs of Jacksonville ISD students flocked to the John Alexander Gym and the Norman Activity Center Thursday evening to take part in the local Chamber of Commerce’s 14th annual “Back to School Fair.” Cherokee Charmers (Pictured) helped distribute backpacks at the gym, while volunteers assisted The Clothes Closet & More with clothing distribution at the Norman Center. Chamber president Peggy Renfro said that because of the response from civic groups, churches, businesses and citizens with donations of supplies and money, approximately 1,000 backpacks stuffed with supplies were given out.
