BROOKVILLE â€” Share the Love, an annual fundraiser for the Brookville YMCA, held in memory of Connor Gerg, a former YMCA lifeguard, will mark its third year this Saturday.
The event features a run/walk, as well as a soup sale, a bake sale, a silent auction, a merchandise sale and more, with all the money going back into the YMCA.
Beth Gerg, Connorâ€™s mother, said the event began in February 2012, the brainchild of a group of people who wanted to find a way to do something for the community in his memory after his passing in 2011.
Students from The Daylily Learning Center recently went to Mulberry Square to pass out cards that they made for the residents.
While visiting at Mulberry Square, the children sang a song to the residents and played a Bingo-style game called Bible Jingo.
The Daylily Learning Center, located at the First Church of God, is a ministry for homeschooling families.
