| May 19, 2013

DSC_0587COSHOCTON The 2013 Coshocton County Relay for Life ended with the traditional final lap around 6 p.m. on Saturday evening, May 18 at the fairgrounds. Event co-chairs Mike Farley, Heather Jamison and Julie McFarland thanked the hundreds of volunteers and dozens of committee members that helped make this year’s event a success. With the amount not yet final, the event raised over $112,000 to help fund research to help find a cure for cancer. The Keene United Methodist Church team raised the most money overall with over $17,000 raised.

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.
