Edmonson Voice Report:
While no new records were set this year, the annual Cram the Cruiser for Edmonson County Schools was held on Friday, July 22, 2022 at multiple locations to help provide school supplies for Edmonson County students.
Cram the Cruiser was set up at two different locations, The Dollar General in Chalybeate and The Family Dollar in Brownsville.

Lisa Whobrey, Community Education Director for Edmonson County and coordinator of the event, expressed her gratitude for everyone who helped or donated to the cause. "We truly have the most amazing community," she said.
