James T. Wroot

      1958 - 2012



In the coming days, we'll convey more information about the upcoming run/walk at the end of October.  Plan to reserve Sunday, October 28, for the event.  You can either walk or run in the 5K distance... or sponsor a participant.  All proceeds benefit brain tumor research.  Packets were available at Sunday's celebration.  Hopefully, you picked up a packet.  If not, Missy Jackson is our team captain of the Jim Wroot Salute Team. 

Her number is 827-1169.
