Following last season’s Olympiad, JoAnne Ellingson, Lake Lure Olympiad treasurer, presented the Rutherford County Friends of the Guardians ad Litem a check for $1,000. The donation supports the recruitment and education programs of the Guardians, resulting in better service to the abused and neglected children of Rutherford County. Receiving the check for the Friends of the Guardians ad Litem is Christine “Doodle” Lowry. Also pictured are: Front row: Jimi Moore and Britt Lowry. Standing: Sharon Huber, Bonnie Raney, JoAnne Ellingson, Doodle Lawry, Nancy Hoopes, Louisa Davenport, Shelley Sullivan and Genevieve Beach. The Friends of the Guardian ad Litem program is pleased to again be a beneficiary of the Lake Lure Olympiad.
