Serving all the communities of the Buckeye Lake Region

5K-Run/Walk supporters thanked


What a great day! The Friends of the Buckeye Lake Library’s 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, June 21, was very successful. The proceeds help fund the Buckeye Lake Library’s operating expenses. Many area businesses have continued to support this critical fundraiser and their support is sincerely appreciated.

I also want to thank our record 180 runners/walkers and our dedicated 5K committee: Margaret Hanson, Marlene Rushay, Linda Baldauf, John Hanson, Dianne Ryan, Sherry Hubbard, Marilyn Cassidy, Pam Reed and many more volunteers, We had 20 great volunteers who worked hard to make the day a success.

This year we added a 5K run to the walk and professional timing. We also upgraded our website and added a Pay- Pal option which attracted runners from a much wider area.

A special thanks to the Buckeye Lake Eagles for the use of their facilities and parking lot; Mid Ohio Golf Car for a golf cart; Union Township Police for traffic control; the Hebron Fire Department for standby medical assistance; and Licking Park District for use of the Ohio Canal Greenway Trail.

Please maark your calendars for Saturday, June 20, 2015. Join us for a walk or run back into history along the scenic Ohio Eric Canal while supporting the Buckeye Lake Library. Thanks again everyone!
