Benefit supporters thanked

Editor:

I want to thank everyone that participated in The Don Williamson Benefit Jam either in person, or by mail. Even though the weather dampened the event, the spirit of those participating was not dampened as just over $3,000 was raised to help Don and Lynn Williamson defray expenses that have accumulated since Don’s stroke last May.

Additionally, I would like to thank the following list of businesses/folks that donated time, money, food, parking space, or equipment: American Glass Company, Hebron Post Office, Kroger Company, Ours Towing and Recovery (Kevin Ours), Perfect Cut Lawn Service (Nelson Long), and Sam White.

My next thank you list includes businesses/ folks that donated or obtained raffle items: Devine Farms, Guitar Parts Resource, Lisa Smith, Mantonya Chiropractic, Tammy and Kelly Gray, and Weichert Insurance of Somerset. Others freely donated their time and talents for food preparation and service, collecting money, and monitoring sound and stage equipment. I apologize in advance because I do not know all the names of everybody that helped. So thanks to all of you and to Beth Vipperman, J-me Braig Bogden and the rest of the Licking Ladies, Becky and Kevin Howell, Tammy and Kelly Gray, Marty Savage, Lisa Smith, Matt Burkett, and Ed Hutchison.

And finally a big thank you to our entertainment lineup: Ashley Everts, Jake Rasinske, Reigning Grace, Lukas Harland and Lee Crader, Micah Kesselring, Velvet Kryptonite, and Randy Zacks Ballooniacs.

Donations can still be made to help out Don and Lynn. Please make your check out to Lynn Williamson, and mailing it to Williamson Benefit Jam, PO Box 277 Hebron, OH 43025. Thanks again for your support.
