Thanks to our 5K Toys for Tots Committee for putting on a fantastic event. We had 200 participants, a beautiful day, plenty to eat and drink, some great prizes and best of all, we handed a $10,000 check to the Marines for their Toys for Tots campaign.
We also collected six boxes of toys and it was all covered by Channel 6 Action News. Kudos to co-chairs Tom and Barb Cassidy and committee members Florie Henry, Harvey Freville and Bruce Broaddus for making our 25th 5K a day to remember.
After 14 years Tom and Barb are riding off into the sunset and they went out with a bang. You know it was a good event when 5K founder Sam Minutola was walking around with a big smile on his face all day.
While Tom and Barb are off enjoying their retirement, we still have to worry about the next 5K. Anyone interested in joining or heading up the committee next year please see the Commander. It will be tough to top this year’s event but that should be the goal every year.
