8th Annual Shinnston Turkey Trot Continues to Raise Funds in Honor of Marie Gaston

The 8th Annual Shinnston Turkey Trot for the Marie Gaston 4-H Scholarship Fund took place on Thanksgiving Day on Pike Street in Shinnston. Almost 1,000 participants were registered for this event. All proceeds of the 5K benefit Harrison County 4-H in memory of Marie Gaston, an avid Harrison County 4-H’er. Marie would have been the chief of the Delaware Tribe at Alpha I in 1992, the year she passed away. Marie “made the best better” in all aspects of her life. It is her families’ honor to remember her by giving back to the organization that she loved so much. The scholarship awards full and partial scholarships to deserving campers to return to camp the following summer. It also benefits all campers by purchasing recreational activities along with other supplies/activities that may be needed at camp. The goal of the Marie Gaston Scholarship Fund is to enhance the Harrison County 4-H camp experience for all youth that attend.
