Paul Bobehausen, Director
Food Distribution Ministry
Southern Adventist University is looking for partners to help them run their Food Distribution Ministry over the summer when they have less students available as volunteers. They will have someone from their office leading out the event and providing an orientation. The time that you help will count towards your community service hours. Also parents and siblings are welcome to help.
Below are the dates when they need help, please fill out the response form if you are able to come on any of these dates.

Heads Up! River Float Trip
Event Response Form (coming soon)
Permission Form coming soon
We are planning on doing a tube floating trip down the Hiwassee River on July 17. All Pathfinders, Staff and families will be welcome to join us. The plan is to be in the water at 3PM. More information will be coming about where to meet for parking and shuttling when we send out the sign-up form. Right now we don't know yet whether or not the club will be able to provide transportation. We will let you know once we have that information.
The reason for the heads up, is so that you have a chance to purchase or borrow tubes if you don't already have them, the club will not be providing them. We understand that last year they sold out pretty quickly. And got quite expensive.
If parents or guardians participate, they can make the decision whether or not their child must wear a life vest. If parents are not there, Pathfinders must wear a life vest, the club does have some life vests that will be available on a first sign-up, first serve basis once the sign-up form is available. Anyone signing up after the vests are spoken for, will need to provide their own. These will only be available for the Pathfinders. Staff, parents and siblings will need to provide their own. If you bring a blow-up kayak the rider will have to wear a life vest since that is considered a boat.
Right now Academy Sports and possibly Dick's Sporting Goods have them available for about $20. INTEX River Run I Tube | Academy I went to the one near Hamilton Place on Thursday and they had quite a few. You can even purchase them online and go and pick them up. You might want to look online, it's possible that Walmart may even have them less expensive.
