Walk (in the Rain) for Rice!

It was wet but we all wore smiles along with our raincoats walking the 2.5-mile loop around Seward Park. We walked behind a colorful church banner painted by Susie Taketa and adorned with a rice bag and tactile representation of a rice bowl. Church teams raised about $2000 for the ACRS food bank!
