SUBJECT: Update Newsletter # 56
DATE: March 13, 2013
The purpose of this memo is to provide you with an update on what is going on with Red River Baptist Association Disaster Relief.
Our annual training session at Hope on April 20th was quite successful, thanks to those who assisted with the training and those who attended the training. Our training could not be successful without the group of dedicated volunteers who go and assist each time. We had 29 in the feeding update session and 22 new feeding volunteers. There were 10 and 7 respectively in the chain saw sessions.
Our support of Mission of Mercy, the Arkansas Dental Association’s free dental clinic at Arkadelphia on May 31st and June 1st, went very well. There were 1,500 patients seen by the dental personnel. We prepared 2,250 meals and served them to the patients waiting in line. It would appear that we served about half the patients both a breakfast and a lunch. Thanks to Joe Burt for handling all the coordination and details leading up to the event in my absence and to Chuck Atkinson for serving as the blue cap for the event. Also, a big thanks to the twenty two of our personnel who assisted on one or both days and who interacted so graciously with the patients waiting in line.
I hope this helps you to stay informed. Please call me at 870-246-5151 or e-mail me at email@example.com if you have questions or comments.
