Thanksgiving run

| December 1, 2014

DSC_0011COSHOCTON – Sixty-eight participants came out early on Thanksgiving morning to show their support for the first annual Coshocton Turkey Trot 5K hosted by the New Life Ministries young adults group. Half of the proceeds from the event went to the New Life Ministries young adults group and half went to Joy International, a world-wide organization devoted to the rescue of child sex slaves. You can find out more about the group at Kelly Treat, who helped organize the event along with Dustin Haywood said, “I’m so happy you guys are here. This is awesome. Welcome to the first annual Coshocton Turkey Trot. We are grateful to Jeff Drennen Dealerships for sponsoring this event. We are excited to do this for you today.” Kelly’s husband, Ben Treat, was in costume as “Drumstick Charlie.” That would be a turkey drumstick of course.  Beacon photo by Mark Fortune

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; 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.
