ORIGINAL STORY

CITRONELLE, Ala. (WKRG) — People are gathering today to remember the life of a Citronelle teenager on what would have been her birthday.  A fundraiser is planned for the family of Anna Weaver today.  The Citronelle High School standout died in an ATV crash in Mount Vernon more than a week ago.  

In the past week, remembrances were held by students at Citronelle High School.  They remember Anna Weaver as a bright young woman who helped others and had a strong faith.  A funeral service was held Wednesday.

Today’s fundraiser starts at 11 this morning at the Calcedeaver Volunteer Fire Department.  They are selling food plates and raising money for funeral expenses.
