The North Augusta Junior Women's League held its eight annual "Roasting on the River" event March 30, with Boeckh Park as the host site for event that included about 450 guests and a ton — 2,000 pounds — of oysters up for grabs, with hot sauce and crackers also close at hand. The fundraiser helps support such outreach programs as scholarships, books for kindergartners  and school supplies for kids in need. Among the event's major sponsors this year were Rowland-Ford Funeral Home, Austin Taylor Insurance Agency, Ellefson Transportation Group and Culberson Orthodontics.
