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.

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.
