  On June 3 we had our 10th annual Ovarian Cancer fundraising trip to the Camden 6a00d8341bf7d953ef011570924c58970b-200wi Riversharks, and raised $2,600 to help fight this disease. Some 15,000 women will die from ovarian cancer this year.

  It amazes us how this event has grown – from 50 to 340 people. We have good fellowship and everyone seems to enjoy the event.

  There are so many people we want to give credit to, for without their help this event would not happen. 

  First we want to thank Albert Countryman of the Gloucester City News for running our advertisement and giving a door prize of a year subscription to the NEWS. Second, thanks to Holcomb Bus Company. A.J. and Pam were very helpful and generous, and Craig Reinhart, Coach Doc and Lou Underwood for donating their time. 

  Thank you to all of the following people and businesses: 

  Angela of Pepsi Bottling Company, Herr’s Food Company, Dot and Walt Heims for all their help, Westville Lions for the use of tables and coolers, Kellie of Troxie’s for a great job with the pizza, Delores Nordt, a special courageous lady.

  Also, thanks to Shirley Dillon, Mike Mazzafro, Bart Rettew, Westville Lions for their donations, McCann- Healey Funeral Home, Bob Nehrig, whose help we greatly appreciate, the sales people who sold the seats, John C. Clifford of the VFW.

  Also, Stephanie Welding, my daughter, who lost her amazing mom to ovarian cancer, and Tonya Sanderson, who also lost her mom to this disease. She got over 80 people to join us and amazes us with her energy and attitude. I am sure her mom is very proud of her, as are we.

  Also, thank you to Joan Everett. Words cannot express our thanks to Joan, who lost her sister to this cancer, and she gathered 126 people. She was very dedicated and determined. Joan, you have our greatest respect.
