Forever Fund Champion Donor

Dan and Judy Dobson both were raised in Branch County and have lived in Quincy, except for the first 3 years of their marriage.  They returned home to Quincy so their children would be in a smaller school without the influences of the larger cities – sounds like a pipe dream now but it worked at the time.  They have 2 children, Lori (Faulkner) and Doug, and 2 grandchildren.  The Lord has been so good to them and they are blessed. It only seems the right thing to do is to help those in need or those providing for the needs of the Branch County community.  If we don’t help each other, who will?
