Lots of folks attended benefit for Betty Wilson ...
... including Johnny Staats and his music markers
Fundraisers have helped dozens of Calhoun families and individuals this year, with local residents donating thousands of dollars to help with medical expenses or to help in starting over after fires.
This weekend, a large number of folks turned out at the Grantsville VFD to help Betty Wilson of Norman Ridge. Betty has been diagnosed with stage four cancer and the benefit will help with medical and traveling expenses.
Well-known mandolin player Johnny Staats and his music makers performed at the benefit.
