Support after the storm
Greatness and goodness can be willed out of tragedy. That was evident in Ottoville on April 5 as the Ottoville Mother’s Club held a 5K Run/Walk for its neighbor-ing community, Cloverdale, after it was hit by a tornado on Nov. 17, 2013.A huge thank you goes to the Ottoville Mother’s Club for successfully plan-ning and promoting the 5K Run/Walk. Businesses big and small from surround-ing communities, as well as private individuals, who donated items for the silent auction and bake sale, we thank you. The local restau-rant that prepared delicious BBQ chicken dinners, our thanks. Thanks to volun-teers who helped make the Run/Walk a success. A big thanks, also, to the good people who came and sup-ported the activities. Our heartfelt thanks to every-one involved. Without your participation, we couldn’t continue to provide support after the storm for those in need. It didn’t tear us apart, it brought us closer togeth-er. We feel fortunate to be surrounded by caring and wonderful close-knit com-munities.
Our special thanks, Cloverdale Mayor, Judd SpencerCloverdale Task Force
