By the time you read this, the 20th anniversary of September 11th will be behind us. But before we put another year in the rearview (and especially since as I’m writing it’s September 10th), I wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped make the first 9/11 Heroes Challenge a success! Steve and I worked hard to put on the best event possible.
I first want to thank Jimmy not only for his extremely generous donation of $20 for each participant, but also getting us pointed in the right direction to make this happen.
That leads me to my next thank you to Gerald McLaughlin, Superintendent of Loyalsock High School. Jerry went above and beyond to not only provide us a venue, but to help us get everything organized! He was an amazing help, and we are thankful!
I also want to thank everyone who donated. Kriger Fence, Valley Sports & Classics and Weld-Fab — who helped pay for t-shirts and everyone else who donated their time or money to the cause!
And last, but certainly not least, thank you to everyone who came out and took the Challenge. We appreciate all of you and congratulations on getting it done! None of this would be possible without y’all, so thank you for taking your time, energy and effort in the name of those who lost their lives.
We raised almost $3,000 for the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund. Families of Freedom is an amazing organization that provides scholarship money to the children of first responder who lost their lives on September 11th.
This week brings you our Fall Home Improvement issue! This is always an amazing edition of Webb Weekly! We have over 100 businesses in that section alone to help you out with whatever project you still have on your summer/fall to-do list, or to help you plan for next spring.
I’m super proud of the Webb Weekly staff this week as we put out a whopping 104 pages of Webb Weekly in just four days due to Labor Day! Nice job y’all!
I can’t believe that it is almost fall already! I swear the older I get, the faster that time passes. I suppose next week, I’ll have to give you my annual Fall-Bucket-List-That-I-Probably-Won’t-Accomplish. I need to start researching that to see if there is anything new and exciting that I really want to do, but probably won’t.
