MARCH OF DIMES FUNDRAISER A SUCCESS
The 57th annual Jail and Bail fundraiser raised into six figures Saturday as hundreds of prisoners and volunteers staged a one-day event at the Masonic Lodge. The final dollar amount on the board was just over $147,000 but campaign officials said the total would likely top $150,000 after all the pledges were counted. Alice and Ed Rieves, who have long worked with the local March of Dimes, were honored as the most wanted prisoners this year. It was the first year the designation went to a couple. Funds raised in the effort go for stronger, healthier babies. FOR MORE PICTURES, CLICK HERE
