Quincy Christian School will host a three-day chainsaw sculpting event next weekend to raise money for school operations.

The "Chain Reaction" fundraiser will be held Friday through Sunday at Traeder's TNT Yamaha, 930 Maine. Activities will begin at 9 a.m. each day and go until 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and until 4 p.m. Sunday.

The event is free and open to the public.

The Loghoggers chainsaw sculpting group will be on hand throughout the weekend to demonstrate how chainsaws can be used to create artworks in wood.

In addition, a free bounce house will be on the grounds for children, and food will be available for sale. An auction at 2 p.m. Sunday also is scheduled in connection with the event.

All proceeds will be used to benefit Quincy Christian School.

The school is in the former St. John's elementary school building at 1236 N. 10th. It serves about 65 students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. The school also offers a "college guidance preparation program" to help senior students choose a college.
