The Fraternal of Eagles 950 is demonstrating its support of Special Olympics.


Members recently donated a trophy case to the Madison County Special Olympics program in memory of Savannah “Scrappy” Wilson.


Scrappy was both a Special Olympic athlete and a member of the Fraternal of Eagles.


The Madison County Tigers teams has had much success over the past few years and needed a new case to show off all of their trophies and awards, a spokesperson said.


Chris Stires of the Fraternal of Eagles worked closely with Lincoln Comer, recreation/Special Olympics coordinator for the Madison County Board of Developmental Disabilities, and Scrappy’s mom, Jean Hughes, to make the new trophy case a reality.


For more information on Special Olympics or to become a volunteer, contact Lincoln Comer at 740-852-7052, ext. 1917.
