The St. Clairsville American Legion presents a check for $2,500 to the Belmont County Schools Staying Clean Club at Belmont County Juvenile Court last week. Commander Larry Barnes said the legion has supported this program for several years, but this marks its largest contribution. Martins Ferry Police Chief John McFarland, a club organizer, said the program will continue to expand and bring in more speakers this spring. Last year 1,500 Belmont County students participated in the program. Pictured from left are McFarland, Martha and Floyd Jamison, legion Adjunct Rick Johnson, Juvenile and Probate Judge Al Davies, Barnes, Cheryl Barnes of the ladies auxiliary, and Dave Carter of the Staying Clean Club. The Belmont County Staying Clean Car, Bike& Truck Show Festival begins at 11 a.m. Saturday at the southeast end of the Ohio Valley Mall in St. Clairsville.
