Rick went to the Rocky Mountain Deaf School to recruit them for Freedom Week.

Tim was not present but Gary mentioned that the Directory inserts are in and will be passed out as needed.

Don wasn’t here either because he was in Moab playing.  He does have training wheels on the buggy so less chance of injury.
