The Beacon is publishing a bit early this week due to the Thanksgiving Holiday. This February, The Beacon will be observing its 40th anniversary serving our communities. So many people, so many friends, so many great associates, so many great customers.

I know this year at the Thanksgiving table, my thoughts and my thanks will be to all of you. My sincere thanks for your loyalty and support.

We had a great time Saturday night in Millbury participating in the “Dancing with the Stars – Ottawa County Style.” It was an amazing event which has been held for 14 years as a fundraiser for the Ottawa County Family Advocacy Center. They made almost $22,000.

Alex Morgan-Johnson and her partner Amelia Burkey won the event by raising over $10,000, nearly half the total for the event. Lynn James, dancing in the memory of her late husband Nick, won the Judge’s Award. Judges Debbie Hymore-Tester, Pat Adkins and Bert Fall were hilarious as the judges while Trish McCartney and Jaclyn Zajac did a great job as hosts.

Joan Windnagel from Mentor was selected from 159 entries who found Wylie Walleye hiding in the ad for Magruder Hospital on Page 6A in last week’s Beacon. So, congratulations Joan. You win our weekly $25 gas card graciously donated by Friendship Stores.

Each week we hide Wylie in an ad for our readers to find. You can find the digital edition of the paper here. If you find him, follow this link, and let us know where he is. You might be our next winner!
