Just as they always do this time of year, Levy Association for Retarded Citizens (LARC) clients, staff and board members assembled in the dining room of the old Otter Creek School to receive the donation check from the host of the annual Wild Hog Canoe Race fund-raiser.
For the last three years, that group has been AMVETS Post 88 of Bronson, and this year they brought a check for $6,800.
The total was just a little over last year's contribution of $6,725, and post commander Clyde McGarva felt it keenly.
"We wanted to do better by them," he said.
