Riders raise money for YMCA pool project
Sixteen bicyclists raised funds for the proposed Twin Pike Family YMCA at the Ride for the Pool fundraiser on Saturday, June 22.
In first place was Jim Butler of Milton, Ill. Second place went to Adam Treadway of Louisiana and third place went to the Rev. Paul Catterton, the new minister at Centenary United Methodist Church in Louisiana.
The riders braved rain and a 40-mile course full of gnats that went from the YMCA, out Hwy. 54 to Fairgrounds Road over Hwy. UU to Hwy. VV and then back to the Y.
Sponsors pledged $1 per mile and the funds accumulated are still being collected from them, according to YMCA Program Director Melissa Corbin.
