The Drumstick Dash

    I had to laugh when I opened the paper and saw this chef chasing a man dressed as a turkey!
This is the annual Drumstick Dash. This race is in several southern states, and raises money for the Valley Rescue Mission. Here are some scenes from this year's race. Of course you should be dressed like a turkey. Or at least have a turkey hat!





Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way…”
