Natalie leads her army

Sept. 10 benefit for Graves inspiration

PREPARING FOR ‘A NIGHT FOR NAT’ – Lowes Elementary second grader Natalie Baldwin (far left) recently led her fellow second graders in marching into a school assembly. She was born without arms, a condition known as Amelia’s Syndrome. It has affected her back with scoliosis. The Shriners’ Hospital in St. Louis, Mo., has offered to pay for the surgery. Local groups are raising money to help support her family as her parents must miss a number of work days to be with her for surgery and recovery. That time could total two months. The school is selling tee-shirts at $10 each from small child to extra large adult sizes. The shirts say “Natalie’s Army present A Night for Nat.” That’s a preview of a special day of entertainment, food, and activities on the Mayfield Court Square from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10. It includes a regular auction and a silent auction, a car “cruise-in,” and lots of music, food, and fun.
