The Foothills Community Chapel youth choir recently walked 100 miles of local highways in one day, filling more than 250 bags with roadside trash and raising funds for the 2012 choir tour.
The 40-member youth choir will soon embark on its fourth annual choir tour, starting in the Atlanta, Ga. area and then singing in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
Last year, the choir spent more than a week rebuilding and cleaning up after a destructive tornado passed through that area.
Choir members said they are excited about invitations to share their music in several state prisons in Alabama and northern Florida, then continuing into central Florida and South Carolina, before returning for a hometown singing on July 22 at 7 p.m. at Foothills Community Chapel.
If you are interested in helping these community youth spread the message of hope and encourage those who are having a positive impact in our community and abroad, you can do so by supporting and praying for them.
For more information, contact Rob Painter, choir director, at 828-606-8859.
