I am having some trouble uploading the pictures that were taken at the Junior Ambassador Reception on August 24th. I have uploaded a few of the ones that I could get from my camera below! It was a great event, so feel free to check out the pictures below or on the RANH Facebook page!

Another event that is coming up is the CROP Hunger Walk on October 10, 2010. This event is run through the Church World Service and stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty. It is a charity walk that starts at 2 PM in Rochester’s Municipal Park, goes for just under 5 miles through Rochester, and then returns to the Municipal Park.
It is a great activity for groups to get involved with and benefits a great cause! Groups pick up a pledge form and get donations and pledges from family, friends, neighbors, or whoever else is willing to sponsor their walk. Most of the proceeds from the pledges will go to the Church World Service, who will give the money to impoverished areas order to help combat hunger. However, 25% of the proceeds from the Rochester CROP Hunger Walk will stay in the Rochester Area. This money will benefit organizations such as the Neighborhood House and the Neighborhood House Food Pantry.
Last year’s CROP Hunger Walk brought in over $15,000 proceeds, and $2,500 of these proceeds benefitted RANH. We need everyone’s help to make this year’s Walk an even bigger success! It is a fun event, so be sure to get involved!
