End of an Era

Article Date: 
15 June, 2012 (All day)

 
Several months ago, after much deliberation, a difficult decision was made to discontinue the popular Gerald Anderson 5-K Run.  For more than 10 years the second Saturday in June had been a time for a fun- packed community and family event.   It was also a time to remember Gerald Anderson and his great love for the history of Morgan County.
 
The Anderson family donated funds generated by this race to the Friends of the Historical Society.   Because of their generosity several historical projects were completed.   One of the most popular was developing the self-guided auto tour brochure of the pioneer trail through Morgan County.  
The Friends of the Historical Society want to thank all those local and out-of-town businesses and individuals who donated in the past to sponsor this fun activity.  All those who donated prizes helped to make this a family affair.    No one went away empty handed. 
We also want to express sincere thanks to the Anderson Family, and especially Brad and Amber, who orchestrated a very professional race; a race where the novice to the experienced runner could participate.     
Thanks for the memories and the support of promoting the preservation of Morgan’s rich history.
Friends of the Historical Society
