Clients at the Levy ARC Center in Otter Creek hail the $12,000 presented by members of the AMVETS Post 88 in Bronson on Tuesday.

The money was raised through sponsorships and entry fees for the 35th annual Wild Hog Canoe and Kayak Race held in the spring.  Walker, who spent the morning on the phone with state officials discussing whether to close the school for the remainder of the week due to Tropical Storm Debby, said the money was most welcome after the state cut two programs earlier this year. “I know it is hard sometimes to get your sponsors,” Walker said. “We appreciate it.”
