Racine Roundup

The Racine Roundup aired on TMJ4 during the 4 O’Clock news on Thursday, March 23. This week, Racine County Eye web editor Loren Lamoreaux discussed various community happenings with TMJ4 anchors Ryan Jenkins and Susan Kim to discuss the happenings around Racine County.

1. Read to a Dog program

Through the Read to a Dog program at the Graham Public Library, children are positively impacted by the company of a furry and four-legged friend.

The community program is available at no charge to children and their families.

Through 15-minute reading sessions, children gain confidence and improve their reading skills by reading next to a special dog.

This month, Reba and her owner, Rick Torres, visited the library with the goal of helping readers become more independent.

2. Mental Health Retreat

The VFW Post 1391 and the YMCA in Mount Pleasant are working to normalize mental health by hosting a Community and Veterans Mental Health Retreat.

The event will feature multiple community organizations offering expertise on mental health, service dogs, support services, and much more.

The event is free to attend.

3. Bill Martin’s Fundraiser

The segment wrapped up with Lamoreaux bringing an update on Bill Martin and his fundraising efforts for an accessible van. Viewers and readers may recall his story from a previous feature on the Racine Roundup.

Martin’s journey to get the funds needed for his van continues this weekend with a fun-for-all fundraiser at the 5th Street Yacht Club.

A variety of entertainment including raffles, a cribbage tournament, food, drinks, and numerous ways to contribute to Martin’s cause will be available on Saturday.
