The Special Olympics took place on Saturday, May 20, 2023, what a wonderful event. There were athletes from all over the state. An event for everyone.
We at Rising Sun Christian Community (RSCC) were able to give back to the community by volunteering to help facilitate the event. Our church member volunteers were used to help score and referee the game of Bocce. We were truly blessed to work with the athletes. Kinda of funny though, we may have been the referees, but they new the rules better than we. And eventhough , we had to declare a winner in each game, we really believe they were all winners. A great time was had by all.
Crossroads for women is an organization that helps displaced women find a place to live. Rising Sun Christian Community (RSCC) was able to make a $1000.00 donation to help their organization.
Here is the plaque that was presented to us in appreciation.
“Paws and Stripes” is a heartwarming event celebrating the bond between military veterans and their service animals. It showcases the incredible impact these animals have on veterans’ lives and offers a platform for sharing inspiring stories and demonstrations. Join us in honoring our veterans and their furry companions at this special event.
