Mt. Pleasant Christian Church youth to have a car wash

NORTHSIDE — The adventurous youth at Mount Pleasant Church have planned a car wash/chili dogs, chips and coke sale for this Saturday, July 6.

Now, why would a dozen capable youth want to wash your car until it shines and sell you a delicious lunch at the same time?

Perhaps, they are just fun-loving kids, or perchance they have an agenda. These girls and boys are working to make money so they may take a trip to the Louisville Zoo. So, come on out to the church parking lot, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m, and get the bug juice off your windshield and help these youngsters accomplish their goal to feed peanuts to the monkeys.

Please, do not forget that the Mount Pleasant Christian Church is having their Vacation Bible School on July 20. The theme of the Bible School is “Everyone’s Fun Day.” So, each and every one is welcome to bring their children out to learn about God and enjoy the water slide at the end of the day.

The Tates Creek Baptist Church is offering quite a gift for the people on the north end of the county.

Once again, the Tates Creek Baptist Church, in conjunction with the Eastern Kentucky University nursing program, is offering general health screenings and handing out self-help health educational materials on the church campus on Friday, July 19, at 1255 Boonesboro Road.

This important health-educational fair will run from 4-8 p.m. in hopes of serving the community with vision screenings, blood pressure testing and additional health abnormality assessments.

These important screenings are available to everyone; young or old, and are free of charge. So, come on out and take advantage of this important work God’s people are providing for the community.

A special event: the landing of the hospital’s MedVac Helicopter on the church campus, providing the helicopter can be available. This event should inspire your youngsters to come out and explore this flying hospital and get their screenings, as well.

The White Hall State Historic Site is running tours on the Scary and Scandalous Story Series.  The tours run consecutively each hour from 7-10 p.m., on July 12-13, and again on the July 19-20.

Tickets are $10 and need to be prepurchased by calling 623-9178.

Having guests coming to town -- this is a perfect example of the exciting entertainment available here in Richmond area.

Take advantage of what your growing town has to offer you and your family. Keep your eyes fixed on the Richmond Register Lifestyles Page for additional upcoming activities!
