Church offering Thunder parking

Ohio Falls United Methodist church, 917 S. Virginia Ave., Clarksville, two blocks from the Interpretive Center and one block from the Ohio River, is sponsoring Thunder parking.

The church’s Relay for Life committee will be parking cars on the newly acquired parking lot to raise money to fight cancer. Park your car, make a $10 donation to fight cancer and be close to one of the best sites to watch Thunder.


Business raising money for nonprofit

On Wednesday, April 9, Valvoline Instant Oil Change is celebrating the opening of five new Louisville-area service centers by raising money for Opening Gates, Jeffersonville, a nonprofit horse therapy group.

The fundraiser is in honor of a local third grader, Ethan Vaughn, Charlestown, who is using horse therapy to overcome behavior issues associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and excel in school.

Meet Ethan and his therapy horse, Bear, as they demonstrate the horse therapy tasks that help children thrive. Ethan and Bear will be at the Valvoline Instant Oil Change Center, 2514 Allison Lane, Jeffersonville, from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday.

Valvoline will donate $10 per oil charge that day to Opening Gates. Their goal is to raise $3,000 to help buy a shed that will provide shelter for the horses and additional space for kids and horses for therapy tasks.
