The Great American Crab Races benefit the Clark Lake Spirit Trail, Napoleon Lions Club, Napoleon Athletic Boosters, and Columbia Programs.  An event like this takes plenty of work to put together.  Who should be thanked?  Among the smiling faces are Linda and Flip Reynolds, Dick and Karmen Tallman, Bonnie Bartlett, Josie Hones, Angie Warner, Jason Breining, Chris Holbert, and Robyn Hall.  Also hats off to the kids who performed their duties as keepers of the Crab Hotel.
