ROAD CLOSED

Date: 2017-08-03
To: VOLUNTEERS
From: BASH 17 (info@unioncountyb2sb.org)

It seems Matthew-Indian Trail Rd. will continue to be closed this Sunday. We were hoping it would be open but it won't be. If you are trying to get to Carolina Courts from downtown Indian Trail, please use Shady Bluff Rd. If you are traveling from Matthews-Indian Trail Rd. towards Hwy 74, it will be on your left after Indian Trail Hardware and Common Heart's Thrift store.

Carolina Courts is still accessible via Matthews-Indian Trail Rd. from Stallings side or Chestnut Parkway off of east bound Hwy 74.

We are excited to have you volunteer and we will see you on Friday night at 7pm for the Training at Stallings United Methodist Church and then on Sunday for the BASH.

Remember we are offering a worship service at 11am at Carolina Courts for all volunteers. We would love for you to join us.

Thank you again for volunteering to help the students of Union County. We wanted to make sure you knew what was happening as we approach the BASH at a fast rate. Please mark these times and dates down and plan to be at these locations to help out the best you can. Also, we do apologize for any inconvenience our website has led to and we will be working on revamping our site for next year. So thank you for your patience.

Volunteer Training will be held at Stalling UMC (1115 Stallings Rd, Matthews, NC 28104) on FRIDAY, AUG. 4th at 7 pm. We will meet for about an hour and we will pass out t-shirts there. YOU MUST BE PRESENT to receive your t-shirt. We will also be breaking up into our teams to talk about that each area’s work during the BASH.

Saturday, Aug. 5th at 5:30p at Mill Grove UMC – Hemby Bridge Campus (7311 Mill Grove Rd. Indian Trail, NC 28079) we will be packing up the school supplies and moving them to Carolina Courts. If anyone can help with that process, the more hands the better and faster it will go.

Sunday, Aug. 6th at 11:00 am we will be offering a worship service for all of our volunteers. Two of the churches involved in the BASH are offering a time to worship together and celebrate the work of the BASH. ALL VOLUNTEERS are invited to attend this time of worship from 11:00 am-12:00 pm.

Thank you again for volunteering to help the students and families in our community. The work you will do on Aug. 6th is important work in the life of these people, who we call our neighbors.

Thank you,

B2SB Planning Team
