With the help of donations, Kerry Gleasman of Joseph and Bret McCleary of Enterprise hope to compete in the Snowboarding Nationals to be held March 24-30 in Sunday River, Maine. The pair competed recently at Mt. Bachelor, along with Lucas and Kyle Stangel of Enterprise, and earned the right to compete in the slopestyle and superpipe events.
McCleary, son of Dennis and Cheryl McCleary, and Gleasman, the daughter of Tom and Jodi Gleasman, are asking for donations from the community to help finance the trip, which will cost $1200-$1500 for the two of them. "Kerry and I are looking forward to the competitions and representing Wallowa County and its citizens," said McCleary.
Those wishing to help out can contact Bret or Cheryl McCleary at 426-4267 or Kerry or Jodi Gleasman at 432-6075. Donations can also be sent to Bret McCleary at PO Box 324, Enterprise, OR 97828, or to Kerry Gleasman at 61818 Knapper Rd., Joseph, OR 97846. Any funds not used for the trip will be returned to the donors if names and addresses are provided.
