    “This is more like the old days, the kind of money we used to raise,” said Betty Walker, Executive Director of Levy Association for Retarded Citizens (LARC).

    She was talking about the check for $10,400 that officers from Bronson AMVETS Post 88 had just presented her, the proceeds from last month’s 33rd Annual Wild Hog Canoe and Kayak Race.
