Rural Appalachian Project. Operation Oakdale. July 22nd.

Morgan County residents help each other.  Everyone knows Mary Simpson from Storehouse, Shelby Melhorn at Unicorn Fund and Ella Smith from Morgan-Scott Project because these beautiful ladies and their volunteers offer physical, spiritual and emotional support by serving people in need. 

These ladies and many other like-minded folks have joined Rural Appalachian Project (RAP).  Bob Hubbard of Mossy Grove is the leader of RAP.  Since the first meeting in April the group has expanded to include more volunteers offering service and support for OPERATION OAKDALE.  July 22nd 9 – 1.  Oakdale School.    

Morgan County Medical Center, Covenant Health Outreach, Nurse Practitioner, Deb Howard and TTC nursing students will be on hand to offer medical services.  Other organizations and individuals have volunteered expertise in legal aid, finance and budgeting, addiction counseling, etc.   Fun activities are planned for the kids including a bounce house sponsored by Coordinated School Health.   The Salvation Army may even bring a traveling hotdog stand to Oakdale on July 22nd.  

We can reach into our own community to share ideas and work together.  If you are passionate about literacy, healthy eating, exercise, support groups or some other service and want to help your community, attend the next meeting June 28. 10 am at the Morgan County Medical Center.
