Fundraisers to aid NH employee

Fundraisers to aid NH employee Fundraisers to aid NH employee

Two fund-raising events are scheduled with proceeds benefiting Andy Pavey, a 1996 North Harrison High School graduate who is now a six-year employee of the North Harrison Community School Corp. Pavey is battling pancreatic cancer.

On Friday, beginning at 6 p.m., there will be a color run/walk at the NHHS cross-country course. Participants can register Friday at the event, $5 for children and $10 for adults (the early registration to receive swag has passed).

Food trucks (Q Pine BBQ and Mama B’s Kitchen) will be on hand, and there will be a free “touch-a-truck” area which will include Sweetland’s trash removal truck, Charlie’s 24-Hour Towing’s big rig, Ramsey Volunteer Fire Dept.’s fire truck and Harrison County Sheriff’s Officer Hutchinson with his SWAT vehicle and a K-9 unit.

Also, there will be carnival games ($5 per person for unlimited play).

The food trucks, “touch-a-truck” area and carnivals games are open to the public, regardless of participation in the color run/walk, until 8 p.m.

Immediately following the color run/walk, the North Harrison Elementary School PTO will offer a free movie viewing to the public.

On Saturday, May 21, from noon to 5 p.m., St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Bradford will have a chicken dinner ($15 per person).

The church is accepting donations and looking for sponsors for the event, which will include a basket sale and bake sale.

T-shirts will be sold for $20 each. Businesses that make a donation by May 1 can have their logo added to the back of the shirt.

Pavey was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in February and learned last month that it was metastatic and began chemotherapy.
