Mark your calendars, please ...

The good folks at the Hartford Assembly of God announce what they have planned for their annual Back-to-School Bash. It will be held on Saturday, July 30 from 10 am-2 pm at Hartford Park.  They plan on presenting 1,000 students with backpacks that are filled with school supplies.  Any preschool-high school student who is present also will receive a backpack.  There will also be eye exams, dental screenings, hair cuts, food, games, bounce houses, rock climbing wall, and face painting.  They are hopeful of also providing school physical exams. Everything is free.

Last year the church - with some assistance from other volunteers and local service clubs - reached 434 families from 18 different towns. A flyer will be sent to every home in Hartford, Roxana, Wood River, South Roxana, and East Alton at later date..
