Benefit for Doug Armbruster 04/28/2019, 12:00 PM – 02:00 PM A Benefit for Doug Armbruster will be held at St John's United Church of Christ at I-946 St Rt 108 in Holgate, Ohio on April 28 from Noon - 2:00pm. Sponsored by St. John's United Church of Christ, Holgate and Holgate Lions Club with support from Thrivent Financial. St. John's UCC is located between Napoleon and Holgate OH at the corner of St. Rt. 108 and Co. Rd. J, 1 mile north of St. Rt. 281. BBQ chicken, bratwurst and side dishes for a free will offering. There will also be an auction and raffle items. The goal is to raise funds to help purchase a handicap-accessible vehicle with hand controls for Doug Armbruster who became paraplegic in 2017 following a spinal infection. He was previously able to live independently, but now going to the doctor, church or anywhere requires a transfer to a wheelchair, rolling to the car, parents helping him into the car, packing wheelchair into trunk and repeating this process. The vehicle he hopes to get will let him roll himself in and drive. For more information call Betty Rettig at 419.264.4401 or visit their Facebook page at facebook.com/StJohnsUCCHolgate.
