We cannot thank our local businesses for their tremendous support and donations along with our surrounding towns hitting the grand total of $35,000!
Lastly and most importantly, it is our Town that remains “So Special” and now we really know why!
The Daener Family would like to express the fact that having a disease such as MS is not always treatable and has to be dealt with on a day-to-day basis, and they truly hope that having this type of event will be the start to a new beginning for those experiencing life challenges.
