Mark your calendars! The Arcanum High School Cheerleaders are going to be having their annual 5k race this year on Memorial Day (May 31) to help support the cheer program. All of these events that usually help raise money were cancelled last year due to COVID-19. They will be sending out letters to local businesses to sponsor the race. Please watch your mailbox for those letters.
