This year’s theme will be “Building Each Other Up in Peace, Love and Unity.” The idea for the theme was inspired from the Bible verse, Roman 14:19.

Participants should meet at 10:45 a.m. to line up and prepare for the walk.
Local resident Oscar Penn stated that this is a free event for the community and everyone is invited to attend. Activities during the event will include:
• a kids fire engine tour hosted by the OFD
• back to school supplies will be given out
Speakers will include District 83 Republican candidate Jeremy Gray and Tenisha King from East Alabama Mental Health – Family and Children Services.
