Archives June events mark Mission of Hope’s 20th anniversary

May 23, 2018

The North Country Mission of Hope is celebrating 20 years of bringing hope and healing to the poorest areas in Nicaragua, the second poorest country in the hemisphere.

It all started in 1998 after Hurricane Mitch devastated Nicaragua. The first trip was taken in December 1998. A weekend of celebration is planned for June 2 to 3.

On June 2, the Mission of Hope has organized the inaugural color run, partnering with and being held at Rulf's Orchards. The run starts at 10 a.m. with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m.

The Kayak Shack has also donated a 9.5 Perception Kayak that is being raffled off. For registration or information on tickets for the raffle, go to http://www.ncmissionofhope.org/ or call 518-643-5572.

On June 2 and 3, the new warehouse and office space for the Mission of Hope will be holding an open house from 1 to 4 p.m., with an anniversary presentation at 3 p.m. each day.

The warehouse is located at 3452 Route 22, Peru.

On June 3 at 7 p.m., the local band Towne Meeting will be performing at St. Augustine's Church, Peru as a benefit concert for the Mission of Hope. Funds will be used to provide safe stoves to families.
