In early October, the American Legion Auxiliary of Post 389 in Beverly held their 9th Annual Poker Run. Although the weather wasn't picture perfect his year we still had 145 people sign up and ride through Washington, Noble and Morgan counties covering approximately 114 miles.
Proceeds from the run will be used toward our Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) program and other auxiliary projects. Our auxiliary held their first of three distributions of the school year during the last week in October. A combined total of 676 kids from Waterford Elementary, Beverly-Center Elementary and St. John's schools in grades K-6 each received a book. For some children these RIF books may be the only books they can truly call their own. Thanks again to those who participated in this event.
