Taking part in the presentation were Radio Station Owners John Anthony and Carol Ausberger as well as Travis Clark of Clark’s Furniture. Jeanette McBee of our staff was the coordinator for the charity event. Receiving the check on behalf of DAWGS was their treasurer, Judie Leininger. Mrs. Leininger said the money helps defray transportation costs for athletes who travel to other cities in Missouri for district, regional and state competitions.

The DAWGS organization in Grundy County has approximately 35 athletes who compete in various Special Olympic sports. Several are to travel this week to compete in state games being held at Cape Girardeau.
