Blessed To Be A Blessing
Diane Weech pumps up the crowd, Scott Marston and John Anderson on the ice production, and Ryan Marston and JoAnn Smith on flavors. Production Supervisor Larry Smith not shown.
Oh there he is.
Imagine sitting at church one afternoon and getting a call from a local school pleading for your church to come to an event. It happened to me just a few weeks ago when the organizers of the Relay For Life at Lewis Middle School rang New Hope up. Want to know the secret?
Well, Sno-cones and great people who love serving others.
We had a blast this morning serving over 300 sno-cones. Hey! They told me there were only 150 runners. Hmmm...
Lots of interesting flavors must have pulled them in.In addition to the normal flavors, new additions like "Tiger's Blood" (supposedly strawberry and coconut, and BTW no tigers were harmed to produce this) and "Suicide" (a mix of all of it) made it fun.
In other news, after a survey of what runners were listening to as they ran,it appears that anything with a beat would do. "Green Day", "Depeche Mode", "Lynard Skynard" all were mentioned. No "Eye of the Tiger"? No "Rocky Theme"? No organ music?
No sermons??????????????????????? :)
Having fun blessing people. New Hope.
