The Southwest River Ramble & Roast

The Southwest River Ramble & Roast will be held this year on Sunday, May 19th.  Gather pledges for yourself or organize your business/community organization, Sunday School Class, Women's Circle or equivalent group at church & participate as a group!  After the walk/run down the levee loop (go as fast or slow as you want & as far as you want), come back to Riverside Farnsley-Moreman Landing for a fun-filled & relaxing time eating grilled hot dogs & other treats and playing family-friendly games. No additional charge for the fun once you've paid your Ramble & Roast entry fee & gathered pledges for your walk! They'll be lots of prizes-big & small!  A new community partner will be presenting us with thousands of pounds of food they've collected for our Food Closet that day.  You won't want to miss any of the fun!  Call 935-0310 for more information & for walk registration forms (check with your church office for forms, too).
