Dates and more info for Iowa trips:

River Bend Church admins and pastors-  Please publish this info in  your next and subsequent bulletins as you see fit.  Thanks!

All-  There are dates and some ideas set for some upcoming trips to Iowa for flood relief.  
Who-  we are looking for making teams of 10 or so (15 at the most).  We didn't talk about age limit.  I think we are still looking at adult trips.  If you think a youth age trip would be a good idea, we could consider it, as long as there is a leader for the trip.  Some of the trip weekends we have in mind do not have ANY leader yet.  
What-  Most of the work is still demolition and clean up.  This means carrying, knocking down, cleaning up, etc.  I think most people of all abilities will be able to find something to do.
How much-  We are asking for $15 per day.  This will cover meals.  There is some left over NOLA1 money to help offset some of the other costs.  
Where-  This depends on the week-  We will typically leave on the Friday night before, and return on Sunday afternoon.  Obviously, other arrangements can be made since this is not a very far drive (compared to New Orleans!)  In some cases, a team leader may leave a day or two before and the rest of the team will meet them down on Friday night.  These are details that can be worked out with the team leader.  
When-  
July 26th-27th– Going to Mason City.   –  More details available about this trip-  Leader:  Linda Emerson and Rod Scofield
August 8-9  —  Going to  ? (Probably Cedar Rapids)  —  Leader:  Rod Scofield and ?
August 15th-16th-  Going to?  —
August 22nd-23rd-  Going to? — 
September 6th-7th-  Going to?–  
How will we get there?–  Probably take our cars and trucks.  This is a pretty easy detail to work out.  
Where will we stay?–  Probably in a local church on a floor.  
What to bring-  Sleeping bags/pillows, work clothes, (long sleeves and pants recommended!), gloves, boots recommended, your own hygiene equipment (shampoo, etc.-  I will try to find us a place to clean up each day.)  More specifics later.  (when we know more about what, "exactly" we will be doing.)
How to sign up-  Send an email to Rod Scofield (rodscofield@gmail.com) or call him at 651-248-8495.  He will make sure you get signed up and the info you need.  Call or email with further questions.
