Raising money for Uncle Jim

| September 10, 2012

Aaron Ward, right, age 9, and his neighbor and friend Troy Moran, age 8, held this lemonade and bake sale in Cooperdale on Saturday, Sept. 8 to raise money for Aaron’s Uncle Jim Ashcraft, who was hurt in an oil field accident and is in the Ohio State University Medical Center. The boys raised $300 selling lemonade, cookies, bread and even some green peppers. Aaron’s parents are Josh and Kelly Ward.  The boys enthusiastically waved to passersby to get them to stop and help Uncle Jim.

About the Author ()

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; www.fortunes4advocare.com. I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
