The four Knights who called on businesses this year were Terry Boisen, Marty Zauhar, Stan Sitzmann and LeRoy Rupp, and the group raised a record-setting $13,060 from area businesses and private donations. The Knights give a big thanks to all who donated.
After the 10% to the Special Olympics was deducted, that left a sum of $11,754 fo Cherokee County Work Services, and on Thursday December 6, Rupp presented a check for that amount to CCWS co-directors Calvin Carver and Jan Cosgrove. CCWS plans to use the generous donation towards the purchase of a new RASERS heating/cooling system for their laundry area. The new system will replace an old boiler system, and is expected to save CCWS a lot of money because of its efficiency.
