Racine Roundup

The Racine Roundup aired on TMJ4 during the 4 O’Clock news on Thursday, Aug. 17.

This week’s segment was brought to viewers by Ryan Jenkins and Carol Meekins along with reporter Emma Widmar from the Racine County Eye.

This week, the segment narrows in on a community resource, a new business and a man making a difference in his community.

Community Care Days

The annual Community Care Days is happening on Aug. 25 at the Franksville Craft Beer Garden.

Lamoreaux shared with viewers that the event will go from 3 to 8 p.m. and is a collaboration between the Caledonia police and fire departments with the beer garden.

The family-friendly event welcomes people to come participate in touch-a-truck, listen to live music, eat, drink, and connect with fellow community members.

Dog Tag Run benefiting veterans in need of service dogs

The segment continued by sharing a fun and interactive way to help veterans in need of service dogs.

On Aug. 26, Racine’s  Marine Corps League Detachment 346 organized what they call a motorcycle ride “poker run” as a way to raise funds for Dogs2DogTags, a nonprofit that assists veterans in gaining service dogs.

Information about how to get in on the fun is available online.

Rally for local tattoo artist

Before the segment ended, Lamoreaux shared information about a benefit happening at Dead Set Ink in Kenosha on Sunday.

Funds raised will support a local tattoo artist who was injured in a motorcycle crash.

Lamoreaux shared that tattoos, food, drinks, shirts and more will be available during the fundraiser.
