Abundant water flows from a well in Sub-Saharan Africa, bringing help to a community in the heart of Muslim territory.
The solar-powered well is the centerpiece of Pompomari Farm, a training farm in Maidugiri, Nigeria. The farm is run by Arewa Aid, a humanitarian aid organization based in Middle Tennessee. The first Arewa Aid Benefit Dinner and Auction a year ago raised $25,000 to drill this well.
The Second Annual Arewa Aid Benefit Dinner and Auction will be Thursday, Nov. 13 at 6:30 p.m. at College Hills Church of Christ, 1401 Leeville Pike, Lebanon. You’ll learn what’s next for the farm and mission, and you’ll also hear some good ole Bluegrass music. There will be a coffee bar and a silent-auction table. There will be child care (donations accepted for the sitters).

You would think Woody Hunt would have grown accustomed to honors and accolades by now.
The architect of Cumberland’s championship baseball program was rendered almost speechless Tuesday afternoon when he was informed of his induction into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame during the regular meeting of Lebanon’s Noon Rotary.
Hunt and 10 other inductees will be enshrined in ceremonies planned for Friday, February 20 at Nashville’s Renaissance Hotel.
"I’m speechless," Hunt said, "I just don’t know what to say. I’m overwhelmed and feel unworthy. I didn’t know what was going on, this is a total surprise.
"I’ve worked with a lot of good people through the years, I’ve just done my job . . . I don’t know why I deserve this."
Already a member of the NAIA, Cumberland University and Boyle County, Ky. Sports Halls Of Fame and the Tennessee Collegiate Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame, Hunt led the Bulldogs to the 2004 National Championship and has amassed a record of 1043-431-3 record (.741 winning percentage) over his outstanding career.
One of only six coaches to win more than 1,000 games in the NAIA, Hunt was named "2006 Coach of the Year".
