NeveHarms For the past twenty-five years, Ed Dwyer has been engaged in fund raising and coordinating activities to provide ways for youths of the Peoria area to enjoy sports.
His leadership role in the Independent Sports Club as a director and as president was pointed toward the betterment of youths in sports.
