Thanks to sponsors of Jack-O’-Lantern Jog

The 24th annual Jamestown Jack- O’-Lantern Jog 5K road race was held recently.

I would also like to thank all the local businesses that made donations for our free raffle: Ace’s Pizza, Art’s Auto Body, Baker’s Pharmacy, Cathryn Jamieson Salon, Chopmist Charlie’s, Conanicut Marine, East Ferry Deli, House of Pizza, the Jamestown Golf Course, Jamestown Hardware, Jamestown Fitness, Ken’s Barber Shop, Mc- Quade’s Marketplace Ocean Essence Spa, Oyster Bar, Purple Door, Slice of Heaven, Central Garage, Pour Judgment, and the Secret Garden.

I would also like to thank everyone who helped out the day of the race: the Jamestown Police Department and EMS, all of my fellow employees at the Parks & Recreation Department, Bill Piva, Ronnie Parfitt, Clay Caswell, Nate “Nitro” Nordstrom, Rob Goode, Jim McLoughlin, Allison Terhune, Molly Conlon, the teen center volunteers, Brie Bryer, Mariah Messenger, Tiffany Coble and Tyler Gibson. And a special thank you to Will Kitts.
