NEENAH, Wis. (WFRV) – It’s almost time for runners to lace up their sneakers and take part in the Fox Cities Marathon, but it won’t be possible without the help of volunteers.

There are approximately a dozen volunteer positions remaining for the marathon. From managing water stations to protecting runners crossing the streets, help means a lot to event organizers and the community.

Volunteer Coordinator Cathy Mutschler says, “Year after year, our participants tell us that one of the reasons they keep coming back is the volunteer experience. There are very few races they participate in where there is a volunteer for every mile of the course.

For race organizer Amanda Secor, seeing the community come together is what makes race weekends so successful.

She says, “It’s so much more than a sporting event because people come for all kinds of reasons. They come with different abilities and paces, and their stories are all incredibly important.

The marathon is Sunday, September 18 at 7 a.m. For more details on how you can volunteer or participate in the marathon, click on the links below.

TRENTON, NJ — No discussion of the New Jersey capital’s boxing history can take place without mentioning Bryant Brannon.

The former Trenton super middleweight contender fought professionally between 1992 and 1999, before returning for singles bouts in 2002 and 2005. He is best remembered for his 1996 title challenge from a debuting Roy Jones Jr ., giving a spirited effort before being knocked out in two rounds at Madison Square Garden.

Brannon, now 56, was among former professional boxers who were celebrated at an amateur boxing show on Saturday September 10 for their contributions to Trenton boxing history. Brannon, along with 1996 Olympic bronze medalist Terrance Cauthen and others received awards from event organizer Robert Smarr of Knuckle Game Boxing in Trenton, to commemorate their inductions into the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame.

Brannon worked his way up the rankings the hard way and lists his finest moment as the night he beat Frank Rhodes in 1995 to win the NABF super middleweight title. Brannon suffered a severe cut in the first round, but was able to fight back in the fourth round, when he won a technical decision.

“My proudest moment as a fighter was when I won my first national title, which was the NABF championship. I had suffered a headbutt in the first round and it was a really bad headbutt and the ref wanted to stop the fight but I encouraged him to give me a few punches,” Brannon told The Ring.

Brannon then beat future super middleweight titleholder Eric Lucas in his next fight, but his career never really rebounded from the loss to Jones. He fought until 1999, when a knockout loss to James Butler derailed his dreams of returning to world title level.

Brannon says he hopes to dedicate time at local gyms to helping boxers, and he has a few lessons he can teach boxers — and almost anyone else — about the importance of avoiding kicks. distractions outside the ring. He had been shot multiple times and turned his life around after serving time for robbery, and advises other young boxing aspirants to stay away from trouble that can cut short their boxing dreams.

“I would let them know that their worst opponent and their opponent is definitely themselves,” Brannon said.

“If a fighter wants to be a great fighter, the best thing they can do is say no to drugs, say no to alcohol, crime and gang activities. And they can do whatever they want to do. in the sport of boxing.

Some parents in Chester have expressed concern after learning that the person hired to organize the town’s 300th anniversary celebration was a registered sex offender.

Planning for the city’s tercentenary celebration has been going on for several years, with the biggest event – a grand final parade, barbecue and fireworks – just weeks away.

But a letter sent to parents by the Chester School District is raising concerns after officials said they had just learned the event coordinator was on the state’s sex offender registry.

“When I read the letter, I was surprised at first. Really shocked,” said parent Leslie Hammond.

School district officials said they met with the board select subcommittee that hired the person and agreed that the coordinator would not attend the upcoming event for the safety of many participating students.

“I would definitely like some questions answered,” said parent Mike Willinsky.

HAVERFORD TOWNSHIP – A nearly 100-year-old fire engine has made the long journey back to where it started in 1925 and will be on display this Saturday, September 10 at Kelly Music for Life’s Haverford First Fest Music Festival, celebrating first responders, at 50 E. Eagle Rd., Havertown. For more information about the event, visit https://bit.ly/3x0h2nS/

Oakmont Fire Company located one of its original trucks and arranged for it to be returned to Havertown to be cleaned and restored. The 1925 American LaFrance fire truck still bears the name “Oakmont Fire Co. No. 1” and features the original bell and gold leaf trim along with other original features.

Oakmont Fire sold the truck in the 1950s to a private collector in New Jersey. Since then, it changed hands to another collector until Oakmont tracked it down in Pleasant Hill, Missouri, outside of Kansas City, and brought it home to Havertown in July.

According to members of Oakmont Fire Company, “This fire truck is part of our history. Not just Oakmont Fire Company, but the entire Haverford Township. Surprisingly, the truck actually works, but among other things needs to fix the gas tank before it’s roadworthy. It will take time and money to clean and restore it. We hope the community will embrace this piece of history.

It is unlikely that the historic fire truck will be called again in an emergency. The fundraising effort aims to help preserve a piece of history in Haverford Township. Getting the old Oakmont Fire Co. No. 1 presentable and ready for the parade will take a big fundraising effort.

Event organizer Tom Kelly added, “Oakmont Fire Company was the first fire department in Haverford Township. This fire truck was one of the first trucks in the Oakmont Fire family tree. This Saturday, he will make his first run on the roads of Havertown since his return. Kelly Music is honored to welcome her home for her first public appearance at the Haverford First Fest Music Festival, as we celebrate our first responders.

At 9:45 a.m. this Saturday, September 10, members of the Oakmont Fire Company plan to drive the truck from the fire station to 23 W. Benedict Ave. to the festival site at 50 E. Eagle Rd., a maiden voyage of approximately 3/10 of a mile. The old fire truck will be on display throughout the day alongside one of Oakmont Fire Company’s newer trucks. The public is invited to view and photograph the classic fire truck.

To help with the restoration effort, the volunteer Oakmont Fire Company is accepting donations. Checks can be made out to Oakmont Fire Company Truck Restoration, 23 W. Benedict Avenue, Havertown, PA 19083

For more information about the truck and the fundraising effort, call the Oakmont Fire Station at 610-446-9837 and leave a message to have the call forwarded or visit https://www. oakmontfire.org/.

One of Thibodaux’s most popular fall events is back in 2022 and expect another great day of fun for people in our area.

The Acadia Music Fest will take place on October 29, 2022 at its usual location on Percy Brown Road.

This year’s event will feature local and national artists including Dumpstaphunk, David Shaw and headliner Ludacris.







Ludacris

Event organizer and local businessman Tommy Meyer of the Ben Meyer Foundation said this year’s event is shaping up to be a success.

“There are so many aspects of the festival to look forward to every year,” Meyer said. “I think this year, witnessing the growth that has taken place has brought a unique anticipation. Our lineup is amazing and includes local and national artists. … To be able to see so much talent on one stage and in one day is just surrealist.

The Acadie Music Festival began in 2016 as a way to give back to the people of Thibodaux and our surroundings.

The event is organized annually by the Ben Meyer Foundation, which honors the life of its namesake, who tragically passed away in 2018 after an accidental overdose. The Foundation was born out of a desire to keep Ben’s energy alive and present in the lives of community members.

For this reason, the festival each year benefits local organizations that most remember the members of the foundation in Ben. This year’s benefactor is The Bridge to Independence on the campus of Nicholls State University.

“This outstanding program right here on the Nicholls State University campus gives students with autism and other intellectual disabilities the opportunity to further their education and a chance for independence,” Meyer said. “Being able to give back to a program that directly enriches the future of these people’s lives has been most rewarding.”







Acadian Music Crowd

Acadia Music Fest has grown steadily in recent years, despite the challenges of our world since its arrival – namely COVID, Hurricane Ida, and economic challenges.

But in 2022, Meyer said things were looking up for such a normal festival as we’ve had in recent years.

“Touch wood, we’re embracing the sense of normalcy surrounding the preparations for this year’s festival,” Meyer said. “The number of festival-goers increases considerably every year. Based on presales and sponsorships, which are by far the largest this year, 2022 will be our biggest festival yet.

And it’s a fun day for everyone, not just music lovers.

In addition to music, Acadia Music Fest is a hub for delicious food, art booths and more. A children’s corner is also present every fall for the little ones to go out and have a good time.

Meyer said he believes the family atmosphere is part of what makes the festival grow and is part of why people attend once and then come back the following year to experience it again.

“At Acadia Music Fest, there really is something for everyone of all ages,” Meyer said. “From Kid’s Korner with bungee trampolines and rock climbing walls to delicious food from all cuisines, talented artists and a rockstar lineup, Acadia Music Fest is our region’s best. It’s a day that brings our community together to have fun for a good cause.

WWE has canceled the upcoming September 11 Sunday Stunner live event that was scheduled to take place in Eugene, Oregon.

Although no official statement was made by WWE, Ticketmaster released a generic message regarding the cancellation, discussing the refund process for fans who purchased tickets.

“Unfortunately, the event organizer had to cancel your event. No action is required for a refund. It will be processed to the original payment method used at the time of purchase, once funds are received from the event organizer, which is usually completed within 30 days. If the event organizer offers a credit option, this will be visible in the event details of your order, which is found in your Ticketmaster account.

Note: If the tickets were transferred to you, the refund will go to the fan who originally purchased the tickets from Ticketmaster. Please see our purchasing policy for more information.

The event was scheduled to take place at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene, Oregon, but despite the cancellation, the Sunday Stunner show wasn’t the only WWE live event scheduled for September 11, with a second event Sunday Stunner scheduled to be held at the Town Toyota Center in Wenatchee, Washington.

WWE is currently gearing up to hold its biggest UK event in three decades. Clash At The Castle will take place on September 3 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. It was recently reported that the gate for the event is expected to be the highest for a non-WrestleMania show in wrestling history.
