2nd annual Bike and Hike-A-Thon


Rainy, dark clouds loomed over Ambooy the morning of Satruday, July 1, but they cleared up just in time for the second annual Bike-and-Hike-A-Thon for St. Patrick Catholic Church’s “Save the Steeple” fundraiser. Streets of Amboy saw 12 people biking and hiking for two miles for a good cause. At St. Patrick’s fundraising meeting on Tuesday, June 27, some of the scheduled fundraising events have changed. Members of the parish will no longer hold a pie sale at the Lee County 4-H Fair as Teen Turf is already selling pies. The thoughts of hosting a 4-H Fair breakfast were declined because of the ratio of helpers versus hungry 4-H diners wouldn’t be in St. Patrick’s favor. The next fundraiser for “Save the Steeple” will be selling refreshments in the church’s parking lot during Depots Days Rummage Sale from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 26 and Saturday, Aug. 27.
