The Cazenovia area CROP Walk was an overwhelming success this year.
With 150 walkers, this walk to end hunger at home and around the world collected approximately $10,000, the goal set by Paul Terwiliger, the chairman for the Cazenovia area.
At 1 p.m., people began registering, enjoying donuts, apples, cookies, chips and bottled water, all donated by local merchants. Emily Gustafson and Alexa Hardke added to the joyful ambience with their lovely violin pieces.
Paul and State Assemblyman Bill Magee gave the opening remarks explaining the need to support the hungry and to wish each and everyone good luck. Rev. Robin Flocken, rector of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, added spiritual support.
Caz College Equine Ambassadors Club generously brought their miniature horses to add to the excitement along with Dunkin Donuts mocha latte. The beautifully sunny day added to the enjoyment of the day.
