PAYNE – Two significant records fell this past weekend at the 35th annual Basketball Marathon. A record number of teams participated in the 24-hour event held at the Payne Elementary School (126) and most important, the event netted a record $10,400. All money profited from this year’s Marathon will go to assist the efforts of the Paulding County Society for Crippled Children and Adults.

Society official Marcia Pressler noted that the local organization is based on an all volunteer corps and meets in any public building that will extend a welcome for usage for meetings. It majors in speech, occupational and physical therapy, some assistance with medications and various educational seminars and mileage.
