The group of civic-minded people who organized the "Edupalooza" back to school bash in East Liverpool last Saturday for the children deserve praise.
Everyone seemed to have a great time. Special thanks to Scott Shepherd, Penny Zender, Casey Havens and Brandy Williams, who all worked especially hard for many weeks to make this event a success.
Employees from OVCT and Lou Holtz Hall of Fame, JPI, The Carriage House, All Sports, Cedar Hills Golf Course, Legacy Studios, DRS, QDA, A&I Studios, Walmart, BOSS, JNV Construction, the fire department, police department, Life Flight and many other organizations helped, as well.
The city needs more people stepping up and doing something positive that benefits all of us.
Out of town visitors who just "happened" upon the event were very impressed.
