Wabash Little League received a $1,500 donation from Chevrolet and Dorais Chevrolet Buick GMC.
The money comes from a two-part fundraising campaign, Dorais owner Dave Dorais said. 
“Chevrolet and Dorais Chevrolet Buick GMC gave them $500 up front,” he said. “We gave them that at the season’s kickoff in April.”
In May, the dealership had a program in which it donated funds to the League for every test drive that customers took on a specific Friday and Saturday.

Itís the time of the year for sports on WebTV
By Bill Barrows
Remember the Staples TV ad from a few years back…..maybe it is still being aired. You know the one, the two parents doing a celebratory dance to the holiday tune with the lyrics being sung in the background of “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” and the kids heading off to school? Well, that’s how we feel as we prepare for the high school football season. 
A quick drive through a school campus in the afternoon is a dead giveaway that the teams are in preparing for their opening game of the season. The color of a Friday night football game is in our midst. Let’s do this thing.
