On Wednesday a sausage sandwich and hotdog fundraiser will take place on the front lawn of the Rowan County Courthouse on N. Main St. The event will take place from 7:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

Items for sale include sausage sandwiches for $3, hotdogs for $2.50, drinks for $1, and a combo with two hotdogs and a drink for $5.

All proceeds will be donated to the family of Master Deputy Marsh.
