We had a rainy day, but a great day thanks to the runners and walkers who participated in The Friends of the Buckeye Lake Library’s 6th Annual 5K Run/Walk. With our Web Site and Pay Pal people from around the state were able to attend our 5K. The Premier Racing Company chip-timed our event with medals awarded to the top three men and women. The Licking County Library Bookmobile was a popular new feature. We want to thank the Buckeye Lake Eagles for the use of their facility and parking lot, Union Township Police for traffic control, Hebron Fire Department for standby medical assistance and the Licking Park District for use of the Ohio Canal Greenway Trail.
