An Update to11/16/12 Message from American Baptist Men NYS

We are confirmed for responding on Sunday, November 25th, leaving Penn Yan First Baptist Church and Clifton Park Center Baptist Church at 2 PM.  We will be traveling to Red Bank, NJ.  Lodging and food will be provided.  People should bring sleeping bags, pillows, towels and wash cloths, and personal items.  Those who wish to be picked up south of the departure points or meet somewhere in the southern tier should contact John Tharp (Penn Yan) at  or 315-536-8490 (home)  or 315-694-1108 (cell),  or Art Sabourin (Clifton Park) at or 518-371-0412.  (Note:  Art will only be available by phone between Wednesday and Saturday.) We will need people who are willing to drive their own cars with the possibility that we can car pool at the departure sites.  We will be doing mostly chainsaw work, although it is possible that some removal of mud will be needed.  People may bring their own saws but will be required to wear chaps and helmets.  These items will be provided.  Also each person will be asked to sign a waiver form.  The churches at the departure sites will provide box lunches for the traveling teams.  Those interested in going need to contact us early so we can give an accurate count for the lunches and for our lodging and accommodations.  We seek your prayers for safe travel and safe work in a difficult time.
