Heart Association – Heart Walk 2015 ` The Annual Heart will take place on June 27, 2015. Heart disease is a silent killer and many don’t realize they have the disease until it’s too late. We would like each ministry leader(s) to become a team leader and get your ministry involved in this year’s walk. The walk is family friendly so children are encouraged to participate. A “healthy” reception will be rewarded to the team(s) that successfully reach their goals. For more information and to sign up, please see Sis. Candie A. Price or Dr. Cynthia Garrett or sign up at
