Support the Ride for Missing Children
We need 8 or 10 volunteers to break down tables and chairs after closing ceremonies for the Syracuse Ride for Missing Children on September 29. Contact Mike Nortman at email@example.com for details; sign up in Fellowship Hall. There’s still time to register for the ride: 100 miles and thousands of cheering children.
