NEW YORK SAYS THANK YOU FUN RUN
Many of you will remember that in September of 2008 over 300 volunteers from across the country lead by New York Firefighters came to Greensburg to be part of an “American Barn Raising” at the Kiowa County Fairgrounds. This year the New York Says Thank You Foundation will travel to Mena, Arkansas to help rebuild a community that was devastated by a tornado on April 9, 2009. This 9/11 Anniversary Build will be the largest volunteer project as we prepare to rebuild a community by constructing 5 homes and rebuilding a 4-H Extension Office. On Saturday, May 29, 2010, a Greensburg "Paying it Forward" Benefit will take place in Greensburg to help raise money for this year’s NYSTY Build. We will have stops at various businesses throughout Greensburg where items will be raffled off or for silent auction. The Benefit is open to anyone whether you are on foot, in a car or on motorcycle. Wristbands will be available and will include the free noon meal at the 4-H Fair Grounds and a t-shirt. If you would like your business to be involved, would like to donate items, donate money or generally help out, contact John Stoltenberg, event coordinator, at 620-255-3283 or Tom Corns at the Greensburg State Bank.
