Thank you to the Chillicothe Elks Lodge, who recently awarded Superintendent Rick Marriott with a check for $5,000 as part of a grant to aide individuals with Cerebral Palsy. Butch Bost handed over the money last week, which will be used to purchase specialized therapeutic horse riding equipment. The funds will be used for a saddle and vests which will be used to enable children to engage in this therapy and keep safe while they are doing so. Thank you Elks, your generosity is greatly appreciated!
Chris Miner has been going to the Pioneer Center regularly since he was 31/2 years old, as well as on and off since he was about 9 months old. And on Wednesday morning, he graduated.
His mother died years ago and his father, Steven Miner, has been raising Chris Miner as a single parent since then.
“It’s a pretty big day,” Steven Miner said.
As class president, Chris Miner was able to address the audience that had gathered to watch the seven young men graduate.
“Now, I’m graduating from a wonderful school,” he said as he gave a thumbs up to his fellow graduates.
