Pioneer saw many smiling faces Friday and Saturday as they held events to raise awareness for organ, eye, and tissue donation in honor of the late Kaleb McLaughlin. This included a parade on Friday.
Saturday’s events included an 8 a.m. Team Tiffany 5K, a blood drive, silent auction, vendors, craft show, kids bounce houses and face painting until 4 p.m. near the Pioneer Community Center.
At 6 p.m., the community gathered at North Central Local High School to watch some amazing bull riding presented by ProEdge, before a bicycle giveaway started at 8 p.m.
Then a concert was held before the evening finished off with a round of fireworks, reminding all who attended of those who can continue living due to the selflessness of organ, eye, and tissue donations.
