The West Milton VFW Auxiliary recently donated $5,000 to Miami County Special Olympics, which is organized and run by the Miami County Board of Developmental Disabilities (also known as Riverside). In March, the VFW hosted its 30th annual fundraiser for Miami County Special Olympics, resulting in the donation. Since 1988, funds raised by the club have been used to provide many items such as uniforms and equipment for athletes participating in Miami County Special Olympics sports. Auxiliary members Mary Myers and Charlene Wolfe stopped by a recent softball practice at Riverside to present their donation to this season’s 41 Special Olympics softball athletes, their coaches and Recreation Supervisor Krista Smith.
