OUR HISTORY
1984

A young girl was stricken with cancer and the family incurred major medical bills at Citrus Memorial Hospital. After the Chronicle ran a story on her plight, the community came together to raise funds to help pay some of the expenses. A golf tournament was organized and approximately $40,000.00 was raised for her medical care. One of organizer, who was a new to the community, disappeared with the $40,000.00. The community was angry and discussed ways to help each other in time of need and not worry about money being stolen.
