FUN FUNDRAISING — I have played cornhole a few times and really enjoyed it. I have not, however, played the game in competition, but there is a chance for those more skilled than I to do so next month.

The Tom Krickovich Memorial Cornhole Tournament will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, at Como Park, 2220 Como Park Blvd., Lancaster.

The event benefits the Tom Krickovich Memorial Fund, which provides scholarships to Lancaster High School scholar athletes and con- tributes to the Daemen College physician assistant program.

Registration for a team of two players costs $80, which includes T-shirts and lunch. To attend the event for lunch and a T-shirt, the cost is $18, or $10 for anyone who would like to have lunch only.

For more information or to register, visit www.TommyKMemorial.org.

SCOTTISH FESTIVAL — Remember to mark your calendars for the annual Scottish Festival next weekend.

From Friday, Aug. 19, through Sunday, Aug. 21, Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village, 3755 Tonawanda Creek Road, Amherst, will host the festival, which this year features the 2016 Masters World Championship Highland Games.

For more details about the event, read the lifestyles feature story written by Bee reporter Emily Faracca.

The Scottish festival always provides visitors with a good time — and you don’t have to be Scottish to enjoy it. I go for the Celtic music and the Welsh cookies.
