Great morning

To the Editor:

It is my pleasure to share some good news. On Dec. 29, Jon Betts ran another very successful Chris Applegate Memorial Soccer Tournament.

Each year, Jon donates all of the proceeds to a different local charitable cause. 

Jon puts in countless volunteer hours to make sure the event is a success each year. Jon also is a standout teacher for District 300, as well as an outstanding tennis coach for Jacobs High School (girls) and Hampshire High School (boys).

Jon does everything with passion, enthusiasm and a smile; and he makes those around him better people! Jon’s a great man and an asset to our community!

Have a wonderful New Year! God bless!
