My wife Deb and I just returned from the Marco Brown benefit (Saturday night) at the Roy Clark Community Building in Linton.
Greene County Daily World staff writer Anna Rochelle wrote an outstanding piece earlier this week detailing Brown's accident on his Greene County farm. He's now in a wheelchair and paralyzed from the chest down. But he credits the Good Lord for him still being alive, and his message in Anna's story was moving. What a great attitude!!!
Marco spoke tonight (Saturday) and he thanked everyone for coming and the entire community for its support. He also thanked the Lord again for him still being alive, as he went on to witness for the Lord. He had tears in his eyes, and I guarantee you there were a lot of tears from those listening!
There were too many people who attended to count. The line to enter the building to eat was deep just minutes after the 6 p.m. start. Many stuck around for the silent and live auctions. I have no idea how much was raised from the dinner and two auctions, but it will go a long way in helping Marco purchase needed medical equipment.
The generosity from the community proves what a great area we live! People rallied around a family in need and rose to the occasion.
Great job to those who organized the event, and to those who showed up!!!
