Dear CROP Friend/Recruiter:

The CROP Walk 2014 was a celebration with 450+ people involved!  We joined together in common cause to fight hunger both here and overseas. 

Now we’re looking forward to this year’s walk, scheduled for Sunday, May 3.The location of the walk is Emmanuel Friedens Church, 218 Nott Terrace.  We greatly appreciate their hospitality.  The walk kicks off at 1:30 pm. 

I invite you to come to the Recruiters' Workshop:   Tuesday, March 24 to get details about this year’s event, which also celebrates the 35th Anniversary of CROP Walks in our community.    This workshop is designed for those who engage others in their congregations, groups, etc.; they are the contact people. 

If your group has taken part previously, great!  Please come again!  If you have not taken part, please consider joining in.  It is an uplifting event with our friends and neighbors in solidarity; please check out for more!

We will have registration and promotional materials, curriculum materials for schools and teachers, and worship resources.

The recruiters’ workshop will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. for March 24 at Emmanuel Baptist/Friedens UCC Church, 218 Nott Terrace, Schenectady 12307.  We will have a light supper and begin the more formal part at 6. 

We look forward to seeing you on March 24  (A snow date is the following week on the parallel date…but we hope that is not necessary.)

Feel free to call me at 374-2683 or email me ( to RSVP and/or if you have any questions; or if you would like materials prior to March 24.
