This last weekend we took 7 athletes to the State Bowling competition in Beaverton/Hillsboro and we had a wonderful time. The athletes did a great job and we brought home some medals! Cheyenne Phipps received GOLD, Lindsay Stephens received SILVER, Kerry Tomisser received SILVER, Rachelle McClaughry received BRONZE, Jamie McClaughry received 4th place, Allen McDaniel received 6th place and Tasha Stuck received 7th place. GOOD JOB TO EVERYONE!!! After they were done bowling, we went for dinner and the dance! I think everyone had fun at the dance.
At the opening ceremonies, Wal Mart presented a check for $50,000 to Special Olympics of Oregon!!! We received word that this money was going to be distributed to the different local programs and that our program here in Baker will be receiving over $1000 from the donation!!! We are very excited! Thank you Wal Mart and SOOR!!
