Fairland High School is conducting a spaghetti dinner fundraiser this Thursday for the Kent and Becky Sanborn family. Kent is a well known photographer that has covered local sporting events and other youth activities in the area for 40 years. He has been a blessing to generations of families in Lawrence County but has fallen ill and is being placed in hospice after a stint in the hospital at Ohio State. The meals can be picked up at Fairland High School on Thursday from 5-8 pm. Rodney Littlejohn, who has worked at Hecla water for many years, has volunteered to pick up meals at 5 pm and deliver them to the SV campus on Thursday evening as soon as he can get there. We need to let Fairland know the number of meals needed today so they can order the ingredients for the meal. The dinner includes spaghetti, bread, and dessert. Cost is $15 per meal. CASH payment in advance is required and is due by end of the day Wednesday. If you plan to pick up the meal at Fairland contact them at 740-886-3250. If you wish to pick them up at Symmes Valley High on Thursday evening order them at 740-643-2371.Thank you in advance for your support of this gentleman that has selflessly given so much enjoyment to the families of Lawrence County over the years.Sincerely,Darrell A.
