Businesses make ultimate race weekend a big success

Alexander Rossi

I want to thank Jeff Ackerman and The Union for their support in offering the Ultimate Race Weekend contest prize package.

I enjoyed meeting so many members of the community as we held the contest and truly appreciated each business that joined in to help with the advertising and served as an entry form collection location.

There was a lot of excitement on April 30 as the draw- ing was held and a special round of thanks goes out to the following people for making that night possible:

Bob Santin, Raley’s, for drink donations; Dave Bollen, Twin Cities Church, for staging; Ingrid Peterson, Grass Valley Florist, for the drawing container; Ed and Billy Townsend, Grass Valley Sign; Debbie Schaefer; Linda Moore; Gloria Ziegenhirt; Stacey Dove; Drew Horwath; Ryan Monax; Mark and Jan Fleming; Philip McClendon; Warren Rager; Lazy Dog Ice Cream; and Brian Hamilton and Kelli Phenix of The Union.

I am thankful to live in a community that is so willing to stand behind its youth and encourages them to dream big and reach for their goals.
