| On this beautiful, sunny (however, still chilly) spring day, over 75 people gathered for the 7th Annual GRACE RACE/WALK to help raise funds for the "Inspiring Senior" Award Scholarships given out to graduating seniors in each of the 6 high schools in Schoharie County.|
Congratulations to all, and especially to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place male & female winning runners and walkers:
Many who have run or walked the race before were there, but it was great to see even more new faces. As they milled around waiting for the starting horn to blow, they talked of the day and of past races and how this would be an easier or more difficult day's trek. Then older runners kicked off and showed the younger participants, as young as kindergarten age, just how it's done!
Afterward, everyone joined at the pavilion for a picnic lunch, laughter, joking, and fellowship, as they awaited the results and the awards of trophies and medallions.
Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers and to the generous corporate sponsors without whom this would not be possible.

WATER MISSIONS INITIATIVE
Thank you for your support! The $30,000 has been raised for the project.
Placement to be in Aquas Del Padres,
What a blessing! We have been humbled and are joyful at the same time for all that Water Missions International is doing and are so thankful to have been able to be a part of this wonderful mission and ministry.
The site has been selected and the project is moving forward to be placed in the village of Aquas Del Padres in Honduras. When the water system is installed in/near the school, clean water will be piped into each classroom. Also, access to the water will be made available to the villagers via pipes outside the school. Some of the piping infrastructure in the village itself needs to be updated prior to installation and this portion of the project will be funded through another partner/donor to Water Mission. We will post updates as we receive
