Kintnersville Resident Runs for a Cure

Hey! Here's an opportunity to do something good:

Darlene Kaminsky of Chestnut Hill Farm in Kintnersville is currently training for the Nike Women's Marathon, to be held October 18th in San Francisco. She'll be participating as a member of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society "Team in Training" or TNT.

You might know Darlene as the Pie Lady who, with her partner Dave VonBing, frequently shows up to sell her yummy baked goods at local events. Or you may know her from her work with the Gallows Run Watershed Association. She's been invaluable in helping to keep member databases in good shape over the years, among other services.

In that community spirit of service, Darlene has been fundraising for the past few months, working toward a goal of $3900 to go toward this worthy event. She's planning a barn/bake sale for August 22nd on their property at 105 Chestnut Lane in Kintnersville.

Yes, that's tomorrow. And since the forecast is for nasty weather, you won't be able to do much outside anyway. Might as well spend some time in a nice, dry barn and pick up some goodies to help pass the wet weekend, and help put Darlene over the top in her goal!

Let's pull together to help our friend and neighbor achieve this milestone, and do us proud in representing our community in the City by the Bay!
