CLEVELAND â€” The first ever Christmas Story House Run on Saturday in Cleveland marked the 30th anniversary of the holiday favorite film. Money raised by the 5K and 10K went to revitalizing the neighborhood surrounding the home where the movie was filmed.
Several locals ran in the downtown Cleveland race from Public Square to the house, now a museum to the movie.
Joanna Bell and Diana Varno ran the race together, despite frigid temperatures and were amazed at the number of people running the race: some in pink bunny suits such as Varnoâ€™s.
Young dancers discovered the true meaning of Christmas through helping locals in need this holiday season.
During the Wapakoneta Dance Centreâ€™s â€śHoliday Spectacular,â€ť goods and monetary donations were collected to give to the Christmas Cheer program this year. The event brought parents and children to visit with Santa with the admission of a food item. Many fundraisers, including raffles and refreshments, were organized for the cause.
The Dance Centre has collected donations for the past three years and continues to be one of the many leading organizations in the program.
HARROD — The Allen East Mustangs seemed to have figured out the Wapakoneta Redskins defense and relied upon it to sustain a lead nearly the entire second half Tuesday.
After falling behind by eight, 26-18, midway through the second quarter, a 17-3 run before halftime gave the Mustangs a six-point lead, 35-29, at halftime.
They surrendered a 10-point second half lead inside the three minutes left in the game but managed to came away with the win, 62-60, in a non-league varsity girls basketball game Tuesday at Allen East High School.
