The event will be held at the Young’s home located “on the curves” in Collins (5485 State Rd 205, Columbia City – look for the big wooden cross on the white barn!). Starting at 4 p.m. with prayer and a balloon release, food, music, swimming, volleyball, fellowship and a few surprises are scheduled through 8 p.m.
Free-will donations from the outing are applied to the scholarship funds established in memory of Megan (Class of 2011) and Andy (Class of 2010). Through the continued generosity of family, friends and community members, scholarships have been awarded by the families annually. Recipients of the Megan Christine Young Memorial Scholarship include Alexis Bankson (2010) and Alexandra Walker (2011). Recipients of the Andrew C. Spencer Memorial Scholarship include Jordan Hamilton (2010) and Dustin Arvola (2011).
Last year’s benefit was attended by an estimated 350 people.
