To the Editor:
The Second Annual Donald Bowman Scholarship Night 5k was a huge success on Saturday August 9th.
We cannot thank the Vineyard Golf Course enough for allowing us to host the 5k. We also want to extend our thanks to all of our volunteers and Switzerland County EMS. Special thanks goes to Robin Bruce and The Pleasant Ridge Church of Christ for supplying the snack table.
The event would not have been a success without our many sponsors, volunteers, and donations. We would like to recognize our sponsors and tell them thanks.
