There were 90 people in attendance. The Summit County site was our parish grounds at Prince of Peace. Registration was 9am, Walk was at 10am (short walk around the church; long walk marked in our back field), Raffle at 10:30am in the pavilion. The long walk had the path marked by 34 signs with short prayers or sayings from the Bible or famous people ( one sign is pictured at the end of the pictures). The only sign missing at the end was a Burma Shave Sign.
in 2019, it is estimated Prince of Peace has raised over $7,500 in total to help the needy in the Barberton area thanks to generous doations, KofC Council 14111, and KSKJ Lodge 110.
