Thanks to those who helped with the Fifth Annual St. Stan’s 5K

June 3 was the Fifth Annual St. Stanislaus 5K Run/Walk, which was held in cooperation with The Town of Trail Creek at Nelson Park. For the fourth consecutive year, standout Michigan City Wolves runner Bryon Berg won the race in a time of 15:29. Female winner was Trail Creek resident Paula Caseda, who finished with a time of 20:32.

We want to thank The Town of Trail Creek for their support and cooperation, and Town Marshal Stephen Dick, Sgt. Eric Lisoski from the Trail Creek Police Department and also Junior from the Trail Creek Street Department.

We want to thank all of our sponsors, the 147 race participants and many volunteers. This fundraiser was for the Parish Renaissance Campaign for needed church repair for the roof area parapet repair.

Special thanks to our sponsors: St. Andrews Products, Robert Tylisz Appliance for Robert’s donation of the beautiful plaque awards he hand-crafted, Members Advantage Credit Union, Ott/Haverstock Funeral Chapel, Sauers Buick/GMC, Snyder Insurance Agency, Snyder & Associates, Rowley & Company LLP and Dr. Lolita Ang.

We also want to thank the many volunteers, including photographers Paul Kemiel and Jill Wozniak; we could not have held this event without all of their help. We also want to thank St. Luke Church for allowing us to use their lot for parking, The Beacher, and Matt Fritz, from The News-Dispatch.

Results have been posted at by clicking on races and then results.

Hope to see you again next year Saturday, June 2, 2018.

Ride on, Guardian Riders

Every now and then, along comes a true story that reminds us that there are good people in the world.

The Guardian Riders are a group of strong, dedicated people who don't just talk about helping others, they actually do it. How lucky we are to have them in our community.

The Guardian Riders should be supported so that they can continue to help those in need.
