Invitation to Help with 5K Run
From Mitzie Schafer, Crossroads Lutheran Church:
This is an invitation to help with the first Indian Land 5K Run/Walk. I will be sending out letters to all the local churches to help with things like water, t-shirts, registration, marking off the roads, prizes, making and handing out brochures, etc. Money and foot work are needed prior to and the day of. the run will be held first thing in the morning, so you will not miss out on any of the days events. You can read about the event in this week's Gateway. If any of you would like to help put this together a meeting will be held next Thursday evening (July 16)at 7:30 PM at Crossroads Lutheran Church. Please come if you interested in serving the community in this way.
