Plates will be served from 4 to 5 p.m. for $10 donations. Candidates will be asked to speak about their backgrounds, platforms and vision for their respective offices.

A highlight of the Coles Point rally every four years is the cake auction held during intermission. Cakes and other desserts for auction should be dropped off at the station by noon Saturday. 

During the rally at the last election cycle, a bidding war for a prized cake resulted in a donation in excess of $1,000 for the fire department.

The station is located at 1270 Sardis Lake Dr. For more information, contact Grace Stuart at 662-934-6743.
