You may also drop your shoes off April 21 at the office of State Rep. Rita Mayfield, 120 S. Genesee St. Waukegan.


Fund-raiser: This June, First Presbyterian Church, Waukegan, will send a mission team to partner with the Alpha Omega Bible School and Clinica Tzeltal Manos de Cristo in Ocosingo, Chiapas, Mexico. First Presbyterian has sent five teams since 2007 helping to build the Clinica, teaching Vacation Bible School and worshiping in the local churches. Since the clinic is complete, the team will go to a village near Palenque, a famous Mayan ruin, to help put the roof on a new church. They will also teach Vacation Bible School and live and worship within the village. The church will have a fund-raiser April 16 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Zion Culver’s Restaurant, 3335 Sheridan Road. A portion of the proceeds from each purchase will be donated to the church’s mission trip fund. Just mention this article or the mission when you order.
