Several West Greene students and faculty ran the first annual Eva K. Bowlby Turkey Trot on Saturday, November 18. The race featured a 5K run/walk as well as a 1K children’s fun run, “The Wobble Gobble.” The event raised money to support the library and was organized by local resident Kim Grimes. Although the weather was cold and rainy, it did not dampen the spirits of those who participated. The race began at 9:00 AM and concluded with an awards ceremony for top finishers. First Grader Mark Wassil (pictured second from the right) was the number one overall finisher in the 1K run.
