Recently at the Pensacola Runner's Association Fiesta 10K/5K run in Pensacola, Florida, Anna Marie Dobson, Matt Dobson, Roger Dobson, and David Dobson all ran the 5K race. This marks the first race they all ran together! It was a good day! Matt won Overall Masters in 16:27 and finished 2nd overall, David finished 5th in his age group and 50th overall, Anna Marie finished 11th in her age group, and Roger finished 1st in his age group and 55th overall. 500 runners were in the 5K and approximately 700 in the 10K.
On Saturday, June 15, 2013 Living With Purpose will coordinate a fundraiser (10K Trail Run) for the Coon Hill Cemetery. The race will begin at the start of Williams Lake Road and run to the public boat ramp and back; a distance of 6.2 miles. As many of you know, this cemetery has been around since the 1830s. It is our duty to preserve our heritage and the landmarks that make our small communities so unique. Please find the FACEBOOK page for Williams Lake 10K Trail Challenge and "Like" it. Info will be posted there weekly as we get closer to the date. I encourage all of you to visit the Jay Historical Society website (www.jayhistoricalsociety.org) and click on Pioneer Stories to learn more about the once bustling COON HILL Community!
