Thanksgiving morning, participants in the Gobbler’s Gallop 5K/1K Family Fun Run headed out from the parking lot at Nilssen’s Foods in Ellsworth’s midway district. The event raised over $2,000 for St. Paul’s United Church of Christ’s Youth Group’s 2014 mission trip. Organizers said they’d hoped for a turnout of perhaps 30-to-50 people at the first-time outing, so were extremely pleased when around 100 showed interest (Photos by Bill Kirk).
