Thank You, One and All

IMG_1793 ReThe CROP Walk has been a tradition in Oak Park, River Forest, and Forest Park for the past 31 years and is always full of such joy and excitement. This year’s Walk certainly did not disappoint!
We were so thankful for the peace and blessings, holy sunshine, blessings from Reverend Sally Iberg, singing and clapping, face painting and balloons, inspirational walk signs, Rest Stops at Ascension Church and St. Paul’s Thai Lutheran Church, the hunger advocacy table, homemade cream cheese and homemade CROP oatmeal cookies, the great fun we all had at the photo booth, the Kingdom Runners cheering at the Finish Line, and of course, all of the wonderful walkers!
Those of us on the Hunger Walkathon West CROP Walk Team are so thankful for all of you wonderful people who have made “ending hunger” part of your life’s mission; without you, there would be no CROP Walk.
We are also exceedingly appreciative of Wednesday Journal Inc., which has provided us space for our full-page “thank you” advertisement for FREE for almost 20 years. This has provided us with the opportunity to thank all those who donated time, effort, and talents, as well as our supportive local businesses, that together makes it all possible! The Wednesday Journal is the “pulse” of the community, and we are so fortunate to have such a community-oriented paper available in our area. One of the benefits of the Wednesday Journal is their email updates of breaking news in the community.  We encourage you to sign up for their emails as a further benefit of  providing the best news in the area.  Just click on this link to sign up.
