Recap/Results

Another Buffalo 105 is in the books.  The forecast this year looked scary on Friday night, but no one I talked to at the finish told me it was cold, even when I asked if they were cold.  In my humble opinion, the weather this year was quite good, nearly perfect.  Based on this year I think I like the first Saturday in October date.  I plan to hold the 2021 Buffalo 105 on October 2.

You are amazing.  You donated 123 pounds of food and $360 to the Food Pantry of Jasper County.  I delivered the food today and received many thanks.  I have attached a picture of the food once my wife had it all organized.  They were especially thrilled because you donated items they needed for the holiday baskets they are starting to put together.  From the Salvation Army Food Pantry and me, thank you!
