The 17th annual SaddleBrooke Community Outreach was held on Saturday, Oct. 26, based at SaddleBrooke Country Club. More than 300 walkers started the day with warm up exercises by Vital Moves, and then followed Grand Marshal Marcia Van Ommeran on the three mile route around Ridgeview Blvd. Included in the participants were many dogs, one cat, and 64 registrants from schools and businesses in our service area.
A full breakfast including quiche, bacon, danish, yogurt and beverages was well served by the staff at the HOA1 dining room. Raffle prizes were awarded, and Grand Marshal Marcia was complimented for her many years of service to SBCO. She has been a recording secretary, day manager at Kids’ Closet, statistician for youngsters visiting the closet, made tribute cards, and also ran the annual Clothe a Child campaign.
SBCO thanks everyone for making this a very successful event; sponsors, volunteers, Patrol, walkers, committee members, and even the papers for their willingness to help with publicity!
Keep those sneakers ready for next year’s walk — after all, it is all about the kids. If you would like more information about SBCO go to our website: www.community-outreach.org.
