WVOL Sees Hundreds at the State Fair            

West Virginia Operation Lifesaver presenters spoke with thousands recently at the State Fair of West Virginia. According to WVOL State Coordinator, John Perry, "We had a tremendous number or people stop at our OL booth this year. Even though the crowds at the fair overall seemed smaller than in years past, our booth was heavily visited again this year."

The WVOL booth was again located in the West Virginia Building where the 16 WVOL volunteers shared our very important safety message to everyone who stopped at the booth. The volunteers worked in six hour shifts with at least two people at the booth each shift from 9:00 am until 9:00 pm.

Those who volunteered this year were Ira Baldwin, Wayne Sexton, H.R. McVey, Ray Murdock III, Paula Murdock, Audrey Saylor, Don Mills, Doyal Witt, Dean Hudnall, LeAndria Reed, Quincy Adams, Don Maxwell, Ross Dye, Kester Roth and John McPhail. According to Perry, "We didn't have as many volunteers this year as we normally do but most of those who came worked at least two shifts and did a great job."
