UPCOMING:  Trip dates for 2017

Fall, October 1-7, 2017
Columbia South Carolina

Happy New Year All!

We have started a new year.  What a blessing this past year has been for many who have helped those who suffered through a disaster. The type of disaster does not matter.  Thank you to all who have help make their lives a bit better in the year 2016.

In 2017 Northern Ohio is scheduled serve in Columbia South Carolina. We have two dates of service:  May 7-13, 2017 and October 1-7, 2017. What a change in scenery. We have not been south in a long time.  This should be a very interesting trip and time of service to others.

Contact Brenda Hostetler: hjbrenda@aol.com
or Bob Patalano: mrpatalano@frontier.com

We will be sending out more information throughout the winter and spring.  Put these two dates on your calendar and go with us.
