Many of our listeners have been asking what happened to our participation with RAM this year.  It is still on the calendar, just later than in the past years that we have been involved.  The dates for 2016 are October 14, 15 and 16.  We will be operating our Snack Tent for patients and volunteers for the thousands that will be attending this free medical assistance event and will need the help of volunteers and donations to accomplish this community outreach project.  More details will be posted in upcoming days, but your prayers are appreciate in these early days of development.
