4th of July Carnival

We are very busy at the Mission making preparations for our annual 4th of July Carnival on Monday, July 4 from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. We will roll out the red carpet for homeless men, women and children.  Rolf Geyling, president of the Rescue Mission, summed it up best by saying “Poverty doesn’t take a vacation so neither do we.”  This has become our mantra for the holiday demonstrated by staff members and volunteers who show up to convert the parking lot into a carnival of games, provide a BBQ dinner, and socialize with our guests.  We’re looking forward to embracing and celebrating with those who would otherwise be forgotten on this special day.
