Good morning MAYDAY partners of hope!

Connie Riddick founder of May Day Drug AwarenessI hope each of you are enjoying a great summer! The 2017 MAYDAY event is fast approaching and we are working hard to organize this years festivities. We are excited that the JAHHS Project Purple team will host a 5-K Run for Hope at this years event! We will have some additional music and youth activities that will sure to be fun and inspirational.

MAYDAY needs your help again this year to assure that the event runs smoothly. The MAYDAY mission aims to offer inspiration, education, guidance and hope to all whom attend. The NEED IS GREAT! Sadly the death toll continues to rise due to epidemic addiction problems throughout our region, country and world. Please help the MAYDAY mission if you can! Together we can make a difference!

We will be hosting a MAYDAY planning meeting Saturday, 8-19-17 @ 10 am. If you cannot attend the planning meeting, but do plan to volunteer at the event scheduled for 9-30-201 from 8 am to 4 pm, please advise me via email or phone, so that I can schedule volunteers where need be. We hope to have some advertising materials available for our MAYDAY partners to assist with distribution, such as we did last year.

Hope to see you at the MAYDAY planning meeting Saturday, August 19th, 2017 @ 10 am at Riverside UMC 1400 Edgewood Rd. Elizabeth City NC 27909

Thanks to all & God Bless each of you,
