Join Team Early Bird!

Several members of The Early Bird staff have formed Team Early Bird and will be walking in this year’s March for Babies to be held at the Darke County Fairgrounds on April 27. In honor of the 75th anniversary of the March of Dimes, Team Early Bird has set a goal of collecting $7,500 and has already contributed an in-kind donation of $2,000.

You, too, can be a part of Team Early Bird.

Just clip and fill out the form provided here, add your donation and send it in the envelope provided in this week’s paper. The names of all contributors will be published in The Early Bird. No donation is too small and those making donations of $25 or more will receive a Team Early Bird T-shirt.

Six of those contributing more than $25 by April 5 will be eligible to win four tickets to Sesame Street Live at the Victoria Theater in Dayton (performances April 20 and 21).

Contributors are not obligated to walk; Team Early Bird appreciates donations made in our name, but all who contribute are welcome to join the EB staff and walk with Team Early Bird. Just meet at the fairgrounds on April 27. Registration for March for Babies begins at 8 a.m. and the walk stars at 9 a.m.

“I thought this would be a great way to get our staff involved, our readers involved, and at the same time, have fun while contributing to a great cause,” said Fred Foutz, president of Brothers Publishing.

T-shirts can be picked up at the office, 5312 Sebring-Warner Rd., Greenville, after April 7 or at the walk. Winners of the Sesame Street tickets will be notified by phone.
