Community Picnic, Today

Jul 21, 2007  |     |   General

The weather was awesome for the Community Picnic, TODAY. A special thank you to all the great volunteers, especially, Terry and Cindy Brown as we could not do this event year after year without their partnership.

There were more than 50 children that were under insured or non insured
that received free school physicals provided by the faculty and
students of Clarkson College of Sciences.

There were more than 2200 meals served at the picnic. There was live
music with testimonies, face painting, clowns making balloon animals, carnival games, three jumpy air tents, flag football and volleyball. There were several presentations of the Gospel, and counselors were available to pray and counsel with the men, women and children. I know
that there were professions of faith and re dedications, but I do not have number, yet.

The Timberlake Outreach Center served more than 283 families with a
total household being more than 1087 individuals.

Mark your calendars for Back to School Bash on August 18th. We will
need volunteers to stuff the book bags prior to the event. Get a group
together and come on down, sounds a little like The Price Is Right:-)
If you are available, to volunteer, please email
cmorris@opendoormission.org Chris would be happy to assist in partnering with you.

Spread the word, we already are in need of the following items:
college spiral notebooks, college loose leaf, erasers, three ring
binders and character book bags for the younger children. We are
expecting to serve a record high number of children considering that
our services are up 77% this quarter compared to last year’s numbers.

Blessings
