Each year Thunder Over Finchville changes a little bit — hopefully for the better. Last year T-shirts were added. The year before that a live music stage was integrated into our festivities. Last year was also the first year we took up a charity collection.
Today we are happy to announce that this year’s charity partner is Prodigal Ministries.
You can go read all about them on the link above…..or read their “About” page here. In a nutshell, they provide post-incarceration support for inmates released from the Kentucky Department of Corrections. They are a wonderful and successful organization and we love them. That is why they are this year’s TOF sponsored charity.
This year you will be helping Prodigal Ministries a couple of ways.
1 – Please bring a non-perishable food item such as peanut butter, coffee, creamer, cereal, pasta, granola bars, mac & cheese, or household items such as paper towels, laundry detergent, or cleaning supplies. These items will be directly provided to one of Prodigal Ministries’ resident houses.
2 – Maria is making two hand-made items: a patriotic themed table runner and a 4th of July quilt blanket. Both items will be raffled off and all proceeds will be given to Prodigal Ministries.
Additionally, we are hoping that some of the guys who have benefited from Prodigal Ministries will be on stage this year to play some praise music.
We hope you are as excited as we are and we look forward to celebrating our great country’s birthday this year.
Dan and Maria
