On May 24, eight youth and six adult members of The Lutheran Church of Our Savior, including three Boy Scouts and one Scoutmaster from Troop 1, conducted a car wash. Thirty-seven cars, trucks, SUVs and one big green John Deere tractor were cleaned inside and out, including vacuuming, during five hours of operation.
The accomplished goal was to raise money to help send six members, both adult and youth, from LCOS to Asheville, N.C. for the Appalachian Servant Event July 12-23. The Appalachian Servant Event was founded in part by Pastor Don Schaefer in 1981. It is the longest-running high school servant event in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
Approximately 35 young people plus adults spend almost two weeks in the mountains of Appalachia doing light construction, painting, cleaning and digging septic sites during this time.
The successful car wash raised half the money needed for this worthy project.
