  1. It was a great success. This was my first year to participate and I can not wait until next year. I live away and it was great to come home and see the community join together.

  2. The churches of Fairmount and Shipman Baptist particpated at the energy station tent. Both churches were well represented and so glad to give out water bottles and fruit to the walkers. This is my family’s second year to walk. My husband, Blly Smith is a cancer survivor and he along with other members of our family and church members joined in the walk. Thank you for being such a wonderful New Source.
