Change in October 2016 date and location

Friends of the SWAT Team,

We have had to make a change in the October SWAT Team event date and location. We will be going to New Life Camp, located in Raleigh, for the weekend of Oct 28-29. As we get closer to that date I’ll send out the details for that event. This event will not include Sunday, as we usually do. When we complete our projects that Saturday evening we’ll be heading home.

Hope you and your family can join us.

The events coming up in later this month and in November remain unchanged.
