Annual 'Keeper of the Keys' run will be held June 16
The weather is warming up and soon weekend recreational opportunities will be going on everywhere. One popular event in the area is the Saturday or Sunday Poker Run. These events started several years ago with motorcycles gathering at a starting point and riding to four other spots and drawing cards to make the best poker hand. Most of the stops were bars or places which served alcohol, but this began to pose a problem for drivers who wanted to have a drink but also safely make it back home. This is where a nonprofit organization named "Love Abby" came up with a great idea. "Love Abby" was named after the founder's daughter, who was killed in a head-on collision with a drunken driver. Many of these runs were not limited to motorcycles, but included trucks, convertibles and Jeeps.

Interest in the nonprofit organization waned over the past decades the group became dormant until five years ago, when several local artists took notice that Chester High School no longer offered art classes for their students. Many of them remembered the influence Pauline Paetzhold had on their lives when she taught at Chester.
