Highway Cleanup Update + Bloodmobile

It looks like rain so we have a backup date of May 15 at 5:30 p.m., for cleanup and 6:30~ish for fellowship at Dallas 2. Thank you for your understanding!

Also, if anyone would like to donate to the meal that was served for the bloodmobile it would be much appreciated. As it was the day after Easter they ended up ordering food to be served. Thanks to all who helped and have already donated.
