Mother Nature cooperated with the Petersburg Bash in the Burg committee by cooling the temperature down and reducing humidity for a ‘picture perfect’ day last Saturday, Aug. 14. It was estimated that the crowd for the event was around 500 people.
Two Albionites were winners in the men’s fun run. Kevin Carder placed first and Brody Kelly came in second. Halley VanLaningham of Lincoln placed first in the women’s fun run, and Candace Clow of Omaha placed second.
