Asbury lawn chair team debuts at July 4 parade

Thanks to those who were able to join us July 4 for the Bettendorf 4th of July parade! We really had fun and are already looking forward to the next parade on August 9 in the evening in LeClaire!

Our GREAT group consisted of Ken Jones, Bec Parrish, Heather Dennis, Denise Jerson, Pastor Kerrin, Rick Reed and Cindy Bruhn. Our wonderful candy distributors were Denise, Lance and Jayme VanDeest.

We would love to double (or triple) our group! It was so much fun and a few are already planning to join us in August. Please consider joining us, too. We plan to have a practice before the mission group leaves for Africa on July 23.

If you are thinking about joining us OR know of someone else who would like to join us, please let us know. You don't have to own the proper type of chair - we will be rounding up some extras.
