Attention St. Paul’s on the Run Team Members… The Race Against Racism is coming up this Saturday, April 27th.  The race begins at 8:30 AM at Soldier’s Grove on Commonwealth Avenue behind the Capitol Building in downtown Harrisburg.  Your packets will be at the church by Tuesday evening for your convenience in picking them.  We always try to get a Team photo before the race so you might want to get there a little early.  Thanks for your support.  It should be another great race!  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Kathy Aumiller at kaumiller56@gmail.com or 717-580-6292.
