Today about 200-300 people arrived at Bouquet Canyon Church to support the Santa Clarita Valley Pregnancy Center in their annual Walk For Life event.Â I had the honor of helping setup up the outdoor stage for sound so they could kick off this event. The event was a great success, we even had representation from our California State Assembly, Cameron Smyth (http://republican.assembly.ca.gov/members/a38/index.aspx) and our City Mayor, Bob Keller (http://www.santa-clarita.com/cityhall/council/kellar.asp)
This event is one of the biggest fund raisers for the SCV Pregnancy center that supports women in crisis with unplanned pregnancy’s.Â Visit thier website for more information (www.scvpc.org Make sure it’s dot org otherwise you’ll get a computer repair company.)
The National Anthem and worship song to start off the even were performed by members of the worship band at Frontline Community Church Then they did a balloon release which if memory serves me correctly is something that signifies releasing the unborn lives that are lost to abortion into God’s hands. (I hope to get clarification on this from the SCVPC and I’ll update this post when I do.) Then it was on to the ribbon cutting and the walk.
Walkers walked from behind the church to Bouquet Canyon Rd and then East up to Centurion Way, crossed the street and came back West on Bouquet until they reached Seco Canyon Rd. At that point they crossed again and returned down Bouquet back to the front of the church where they were greated by supporters with Water, and mostly healthy snacks. (I say mostly because there were chocolate chip cookies there. Yumo!)
After the event I got to pack everything up and put it away until next year. (or the next outside event)
