Weather and the Walk

There is a strong possibility of rain Sunday afternoon, and a less likely chance of thundershowers. The CROP Hunger Walk will go on, but it may be adapted because of the weather. Please do come to Good Shepherd, dressed for the possibility of rain and cold. We do NOT want to have people out walking if it begins to thunder, and we'll be checking the situation regularly. As always, you are welcome to shorten the walk if you decide it is prudent.

We do need the donations you have raised, to stamp out hunger in CU and around the world. Many of the people who are helped by this effort have no choice but to walk, in all sorts of weather.

Thanks for all you do!
