|Lawrence church raises more than $3,500 for March of Dimes|
LOUISA Smokey Valley Church and youth group participated in the annual March of Dimes Walk America on May 17 at Yatesville Lake. Team captains were Frieda Laney and Sue Kelly.
There were 31 people to take part in the walk. The team raised a grand total of $3,586.36 toward helping premature babies, babies born with medical problems, medical research, etc.
The goal set by the March of Dimes was $1,200, but the total was above and beyond the goal, resulting in an award bearing that phrase.
The second award received was for raising the most money and deemed the No. 1 team for the Louisa chapter.
The third award was for the T-shirt designing contest, which said Walking for the tiniest feet.

Allison Webb, who came in second and was the first to complete the walk, receiving gifts for her efforts.
Joshua May, who came in third and also received gifts.
Stephanie Pack, who was the fourth place top fund raiser.
