To the editor:
We want to thank all of the runners and walkers, your support was greatly appreciated. We want to thank the members of our community and especially the McVeytown Lion's Club, McVeytown Fire Company, McVeytown Ambulance Assoc. and Fire Police for recently supporting the first Justin Henry Scholarship Trust's "Sunny Day 5K" Run/Walk. Congratulations to the overall male winner, Adam Wible; and Becky Wittrig, the overall female winner.
Justin realized as a young adult the fine attributes of our area. The beautiful mountains, the great family atmosphere, and he believed in character of the people. Justin had the opportunity to travel across the country as he played college football and basketball for the University of Rhode Island. He visited many cities and explored many job opportunities; however, after graduation he chose to return to the Mifflin County to work and to live.
Our heartfelt thanks again goes out to all 172 participants in the "Sunny Day 5K" event. We hope to see you again next year. Presently, we are anticipating the 2013 Justin Henry Scholarship Trust Golf Tourney. It will be held on Friday, Aug. 2, at the Lewistown Country Club. It will be a day to share Justin's dreams as this year's scholarship winners will be publicly announced.
Mary and Marv Henry
