I would like to

thank Scott Shriner and the editors and staff of the eight weekly Record Publishing newspapers for their coverage of our third annual breast cancer awareness event -- Celtic Club Fights Breast Cancer/Bras Across the Crooked River -- and for participating as a donation site. The Celtic Club received more than 4,000 bras at more than 60 donation sites in six counties in Northeast Ohio. The bras have been given to battered women's shelters.

The Celtic Club had outdoor displays in October at Century Cycles along the Towpath in Peninsula; on the Metro Parks Bike and Hike bridge over Interstate 271 in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park near Brandywine Falls in Northfield Center Township; on the Cuyahoga River bridge in downtown Kent; on the Cherry Street bridge over the Tuscarawas River along the Towpath in downtown Massillon; on the new Viaduct over the Towpath in downtown Barberton; and on the Fenn Road bridge over the Rocky River in Medina Township.

The club received letters of congratulations from Gov. John Kasich, the Supreme Court of Ohio and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

I look forward to working with various businesses and local governments this year for our fourth annual breast cancer awareness campaign.
