The Ravenna Parks and Recreation department recently revived its Marlene Watt Memorial "Pot O' Gold" poker run/walk. Parks and Recreation Director Kathy Hammonds said more than 150 participants gathered in their favorite Irish costumes. The event started at City Park where folks could check in, grab a cup of coffee and participate in a dance party. Then they set out on foot to gather poker cards at five different stops throughout the city, Way of Life Hair and Health Center, Andrei’s Jewelers, English Pub, American Legion and finally the Big Dog Saloon, where folks were awarded prizes for most Irish spirit and best poker hand. The best poker hand won $500. Sponsors included Portage Community Bank, Print & Sign Express, English Pub & Bistro, The Big Dog bar and patio, A Way of Life, Shorts-Spicer-Crislip Funeral Home, Allen Aircraft Products, Family & Community Services, Fraternal Order of Eagles 2164, Wood Kortwright, Borkoski funeral home; Ravenna Elks Lodge 1076, American Legion Riders Post 331 and Country Elegance. Proceeds from the event went to Ravenna Parks and Recreations youth scholarship fund to allow children to participate in recreational programs, including an 11-week summer camp, who otherwise could not afford to do so.
