Getting Ready for “Love Independence Day” April 28th, 2018

CMIH is deeply involved in “Love Independence Day” activities, we are prepping the homes to get them ready.  The three homes we are prepping are on North Penn, they have been selected to be painted and upgraded by volunteers.

Thanks to Tim & Cindy White, as a highlight on Saturday April 28th, 2018, The American Legion Riders will visit Independence during the day.  There will be anywhere from 50 to 75 Legion Riders with big flags. They are going to be coming in through the downtown area around 10:00-11:30 a.m. and making several rounds by the “Love Independence Day” sites.  We are honored to have the Legion Riders participate in our “Love Independence Day”.

Also, a special thanks to SHERMAN WILLIAMS for donating 25 gallons of paint.

And, a special thanks to WOODS LUMBER for the use of their hydraulic lift for use in painting high places.
