Child Welfare

June has been a very busy fund raising time for us. We had a couple of super Saturdays starting with the “6th Annual Ride 4 the Runts” which raised over $2,700, the most ever raised for this event. Special thanks to all who attended, helped, etc. We would especially like to thank Michael Curless who works tirelessly every year to make this bigger and better. Among other things, this will allow us the opportunity to provide school supplies to Clermont County’s foster children.

The Amazing Race is a highly successful group that provides thousands of dollars to well deserving groups and individuals. This is the 3rd time we have been asked to order, prepare and serve food. Thanks so much to Greg Johnson, Del Fugate, Mike Barnett, Randy Sheldon, and Pizza Bob for cooking. We also would lik to thank Patti Goodpastor, Leslie Jump, Leslie Williams, Stephanie Haight, and Maureen Curless for manning the serving line – that was no fun at all! Finally we would like to thank Tom Luecke, Richard Bose, and Kim Chandler for not only handling beer sales but for also making sure it was safe by first testing it themselves. We would be nothing without you!
