Thanks to everyone who came to the Irish Hill Festival. There was plenty of food, good music and a lot of conversation and catching up with friends.
A big THANK YOU goes to Baxter Avenue Baptist Church for hosting the Festival this year. It was a last minute put together, as our original plans fell through and we didn’t have time to get the proper Metro permits to hold it at Irish Hill Park or on one of the streets. The members of BABC did a wonderful job of getting everything setup, cooked and cleaned up afterwards. And it looks like the kids had a great time on the bouncy they provided! You guys are tops.
Did you get a chance to check out EDGE Outreach’s water purifying system? It’s amazing how a little bit of salt and a car battery can produce three (!) things to make the lives of people in third-world countries so much better: Clean water to drink, chlorine and lye which are by products manufactured in the water purification process that can be used to disinfect medical equipment and kill mosquito larvae, reducing the risk of death from unsanitary conditions and malaria. If you need more information about EDGE, please visit their website: http://edgeoutreach.org On their website, you can find locations to drop off old shoes, which they will use to fund their projects.
