2017 Winning Artwork!

The weather forecast is for some possible rainy spells for our walk morning.

But, we are still going to hold our 8th Annual Walk ... rain or shine.

If there is lightening, heavy rain or really strong winds we will ask everyone to stay at the shelter where we can socialize a bit, enjoy the snacks, recognize our top pledge-earners and the center student who created our shirt artwork. And, we will have our door prize drawings! Everyone who registered is eligible to win (must be present). So, don't let the weather worry you. (What good does that do anyway, right?) We'll be there bright and early to welcome you with a smile!!! Check-in begins at 7:30am, walk begins at 8:30am. See you at the walk!
