With the help of generous friends and family members, Mike Melnyk, a Chester resident, was able to raise more than $4,200 in his recent participation and successful completion of the 150 Mile Central Virginia Bike MS Ride.
The 34th Annual Central Virginia Dart Association (CVDA) Dart Classic was held June 8-10, at the Holiday Inn - Koger Center, as a fund raiser for Children’s Hospital in Richmond. As an American Dart Organization sanctioned event, nearly 200 darters participated in the event, some traveling from as far away as Massachusetts and New York.
