New Team Joins Effort

Elmcroft Senior Living, Wharton Nursing and Convalescent Center and St. Christina’s have joined together to form their relay team “Here’s to Life.” This is their first year to participate in the event and they have 15 members ready to walk. The event will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20 at Wharton Tiger Stadium. Hosea Small is the team captain. They are having their first fundraisers one of which is bailing their executive director Brooke Hlavinka out of her jail cell. They are taking donations for her bail and she is hoping the community will help to spring her. They will also have a bake sale Monday, Oct. 1 in the lobby of the Elmcroft Senior Living Center located 1930 Briar Lane in Wharton from 9 a.m. until sold out of all kinds of homemade goodies. For more information on their team or to make a donation call 979-532-5800.
