Riley's Wish Winter Games & Derby is in its third year and will be taking place Saturday, Feb. 15, at Lake St George State Park from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The day will be filled with outdoor fun activities to remember Riley Boulay, a Mount View junior who died in a car accident Dec. 6, 2017.

Proceeds from the event benefit the scholarship fund started by his parents, designed to support local students who attend vocational schools and continue their education after graduation.

Jackie Boulay said in a Facebook post, "Thank you all so much for helping us keep Riley's memory and legacy alive through the scholarship fund. Because of all of you, we were able to give out $4,000 in scholarships to three students at the Waldo County Technical Center in 2019."

That's about it for this week.

Until next time.
